Welcome to The Foundation’s Website!

The Foundation is a non-profit, grassroots organization whose mission is to  provide unique educational enrichment opportunities for all students in the Clinton Township school district.  The Foundation is operated by a Board of Trustees, working in conjunction with the Board of Education and school district representatives.  The Foundation is committed to funding innovative educational programs, services and material/equipment purchases initiated through grants from teachers and administrators in the Clinton Township school district.  It is important to note that these programs and services would not otherwise be funded through the regular school budget.  In this way, the Foundation truly enhances the education of every student in the Clinton Township school district — providing enrichment beyond everyday education!

Reach for the Stars

In February 2014 we launched the Reach for the Stars fundraising campaign.  To commemorate the campaign an actual star was sponsored in the name of each school and that information is now accessible in our media centers for teachers and students to explore together for many years to come.
