We have an awesome and generous community – Thank you, Maplewood Parents, Teachers, and Family!

Maplewood Foundation believes that our children deserve to have all the resources they need; we want our kids to have the most opportunities that make an impact on their education. Currently our teachers and staff are going the extra mile to ensure that our children receive the best education possible. Not only our teachers, but our staff create a positive learning environment for our children. 

What is the Maplewood Foundation?

Our Foundation focuses on raising funds to provide educational support at Maplewood. Each year the district gives the school a yearly budget. Some years the district has made cuts to our library, teaching positions, or staff which makes it difficult to anticipate what positions we are raising funds for because it changes year to year. Raising support for the following school year makes it possible to hire staff before the start of each school year. Traditionally, our Foundation holds an auction in the spring that brings in the majority of our funds. We are able to do this by procuring donated items and bundles from local businesses around the area. We have no idea what businesses will be able to give this year, and we can’t let this uncertainty affect how we support our school. 

Raising Support

With our yearly goal set to raise 50k, we have to create new and innovative ways to raise funds for our school. Creating a giving campaign will make planning for next year easier and ensure continued educational staff at Maplewood that gives all our students the attention and focus they deserve. We want to encourage participation; no amount is too small! We want you to share this with your neighborhood, your company (company matching!), and family (grandparents!). We believe if we come together as a community, we can do amazing things!
