Founders Programs

Thank you for your interest in investing in children in the Daviess County Public School system!

We sincerely appreciate your acknowledgement that it does indeed take an entire community to provide the best education available for our children.

To find out more about the Foundation's Founders programs, watch our Founders Program video.

Founders Program members will be recognized at our Focus Awards Event in April of each year, on the web site and in printed materials distributed throughout the life of the Foundation.

The Foundation's Founders Programs officially began in January 2012 and will end December 31, 2014.

We have two Founders Programs:

(1) Founders Society - for individual investors

(2) Business Founders - for our business and corporate founders

Founders Society Individual Investment Program

This three-year program asks that our patrons invest a minimum of $1,000 (or $400/year for three years). Contributions to the Founders Society will go toward improving educational opportunities for our 11,000 DCPS children. The Foundation will award grants to teachers and schools to empower DCPS staff to aggressively pursue innovative and creative educational opportunities in our schools.

DCPS employees may join the Founders Society through the avenues stated above or through payroll deduction. Email Julia Hobbs for information pertaining to payroll deduction guidelines or call her at (270) 852-7000.

You may choose to contribute anonymously to this program.

Business Founders Program

Our Business Founders program supports our Foundation School Grant program which rewards innovative and creative teaching in our schools. Investment in our Business Founders will make grant funding available to teachers and administrators to enhance 21st century learning opportunities in our DCPS schools.

There are three levels of investing in our children:

(1) GOLD - $10,000

(2) SILVER - $5,000

(3) BRONZE - $2,500

Business Founders may request a logo link to their business from our Business Partners page.
