Message from the President

by Linda Winslow – Class of 1969
The Education Foundation is grateful for the many gifts and continued support we have received over the years. Our community and donors are vested in giving back to our students through volunteering and gifting.

Our foundation is GROWING! We have received donations in the past year to create endowments, add to the current funds and increase our scholarship gifts to graduating seniors from Marquette Area Public Schools. Five new funds have been created this past year; Scott and Jill White Family Fund, Mick and Judy Vonck Family Fund, Barb Crill Memorial Fund, Joe and Elaine Drobny Art Fund and the UPDON Go Blue Diabetes Fund.

We provided over $7,000 in grants to our students and staff for innovative projects that had a direct benefit on students in our elementary schools, middle school, and high schools. Many of these grants will continue to impact students in the future.

Our community has actively supported this success! Thank you.
