Xenia Community Schools Foundation Mission Statement
The Xenia Community Schools Foundation attracts and connects the financial and human resources of the Xenia community to its classrooms, seeking to propel its faculty and students beyond current operational funding to more notable academic achievement.
About the Foundation
A gift to the Xenia Community Schools Foundation benefits much more than students. The reach of a financial gift extends into our community, as a strong school district is crucial to creating a vibrant economic base for future growth.
Such growth translates into more jobs, more services available to residents and an enhanced quality of life for all residents.
The Xenia Community Schools (XCS) Foundation was organized in 1985 as a nonprofit organization to support programs which assist and encourage achievement of the highest standards for all the young people of the Xenia school area. The Foundation is governed by a board that consists presently of representatives from the Xenia Area Chamber of Commerce, the Xenia Education Association, and the Xenia Community Schools Board of Education.
The goals of the Board include: becoming the major charitable fund for those interested in improving the quality of education; building an additional non-tax base of support for the Xenia Community Schools; supplementing the educational needs of the district by bringing new resources for enrichment to the classroom, and much more. As state funding continues to fluctuate, local financial support becomes even more critical.
How to Contribute
The XCS Foundation needs your support to continue. One of our major programs is to provide classroom grants. Recipients include teachers, administrators or community members within the school district boundaries. Funding is provided for programs that benefit Xenia school children. Over the years, the XCS Foundation has awarded over $160,000 in grants from investment income generated through the endowment fund.
To demonstrate a commitment to the future of our youth, contributions can be made by an individual or through a corporate gift. Contributors will become members of the Xenia Community Schools Foundation. For more information on pledging, contact the Xenia Area Chamber of Commerce at 372-3591.
