Founding Donor Campaign

To establish the Albany Area Education Foundation for years to come, we are kicking off our founding donor campaign to create an endowment fund. The endowed fund will allow the foundation to make consistent withdrawals to fund grants from invested capital. The foundation regularly awards grants to provide students in the Albany Area District with a world class education, with unforgettable learning experiences, and with hands-on learning. This campaign funding an endowment fund will establish the permanency and longevity of the Albany Area Education Foundation’s grant-giving.
If you want to be a part of our mission, you, your business, or your family could make a contribution that will bolster continued excellence in our schools for years to come. Consider offering in the form of a memorial or tribute or joining with your extended family to contribute to the foundation in your family’s name.
