Investment Criteria

The following criteria are intended to help the Foundation board make high quality decisions for funding opportunities. These criteria can be considered as a “yardstick for measuring alternatives.” It is not intended that the criteria prescribe what is funded, but rather are used as a tool to determine the opportunities that most closely align with the Foundation mission and meet the current and long-term needs of the school. Investment criteria:

  • Investments with the ability to obtain and leverage additional funds;

  • Investments that impact the largest number of students;

  • Investments that protect or enrich current educational programs: Language arts, social studies, science, art, PE, music, foreign language, math and magnet programs;

  • Investments that promote smaller student/teacher ratios;

  • Investments that the PTA cannot fund;

  • Investments not easily funded through public and private grants;

  • Investments of high priority identified by administration and/or faculty.
