It is the mission of the Manhattan Public Schools Foundation to encourage and support creativity, innovation and excellence that enhance the educational opportunities within the community of Manhattan Public Schools of Manhattan, Montana.
The Foundation was formed in 2006 to provide post-high school educational opportunities and classroom teacher assistance. Each year, scholarships of $1,000 each are presented to three graduating Manhattan High School seniors for their continuing education. Funding is also made available for Manhattan Public School teachers who apply for funding for educational projects that enhance student learning.
The Manhattan Public Schools Foundation is funded through the annual banquet, special events, tax-deductible contributions, and memorials. We would greatly appreciate your consideration of sending a donation to support this worthy cause.
Please consider a Donation, Membership or Memorial as you support student scholarships and teacher grants using the attached Foundation Donation Form.
