Why does our community need a Public School Foundation?
The Public School Foundation helps ensure the continuing excellence of the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools in an environment of unrelenting school budget cutbacks. The Foundation provides funds beyond what is available through local, state and federal appropriations or PTSA activities. Since the Foundation was established in 1984, it has distributed $5,500,000 for school projects and programs that otherwise would not have been funded. Nothing contributes more to the future of a community than the quality of education the community provides for its children.
