D51 Foundation Funding priorities are evaluated annually by the Board of Directors. Priorities for 2021-2022 are technology for students and professional learning for D51 staff. This year we are dedicated to raising $70,000 to purchase technology for classrooms and professional learning for D51 staff.
Generous donors helped D51F accomplish our goal of helping to achieve a 1:1 ratio of students to Chromebooks. Thank you for your support! Our new focus for technology donations will fund 21st Century Digital Classrooms that help our students stay competitive by providing cutting edge technology that enhances learning both inside and outside the classroom. The D51 Foundation has just added support for D51 STEM to our technology support.
To date, D51F has donated over $83,000 in grants to staff in D51 for professional learning. This year, D51F is pleased to distribute $50,000 in Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) grants thanks to a generous donation from Alpine Bank. D51F also contributes $20,000 annually to fund the D51 Summer Institute for Teacher Professional Learning.
