Give Where You Live
In 2006, the Fort Larned Foundation for Education was formed as a not for profit, Section 501(c) (1), corporation. The organization provides financial support for capital improvement and operating support for USD 495 schools, and the students attending them. Additionally, the Foundation monitors 4 local scholarship funds. Yearly, the Foundations sponsor a golf tournament as the primary fundraiser. This tournament, along with interest earned from the endowment fund, provides mini grants, which teachers apply for yearly. This past year, eight mini grants were awarded with projects ranging from math manipulatives, math theme storybooks, phonemic awareness manuals, science kits, math counting center, and helping to purchase a Otoacoustic Emmission Screening Machine.
Any Larned High School Alumni Class with positive class account balance, can also give back to the community through donations. Any monetary donations can be made to the Foundation during the Give Where you Live promotion which will be accepted at the Larned State Theater on Tuesday, December 2 from 12:00 pm to 6:00 p.m. Donations can be made prior to this time at the USD 495 District Office, 102 West 6th Street, Larned. All funds received will go into the Endowment Fund to help with these mini grants.
