The goal of the Blair Community Schools Foundation is to ensure our community’s students have the resources they need to succeed today and tomorrow. As a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, the Foundation raises money, collaborates with partners, and facilitates the distribution of funds to a variety of programs. The Foundation’s current areas of focus and activities include:
College scholarships – Each year, the Foundation provides several scholarships to college-bound Blair High School graduates.
Grants for STEM Education – Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education is crucial for the future. The Foundation’s STEM Grants allow Blair teachers to provide advanced educational opportunities to students that would not be available otherwise.
Blair Kids Academy – In 2015, the Foundation formed a before and after school program called the Blair Kids Academy (BKA). The program is available to students in K-5 to meet the needs of busy parents who need quality and convenient care for their school-age children. Funds generated by the BKA are used to support the Foundation’s mission of helping Blair students.
Endowment – To make it easier to support the Foundation and our service towards Blair’s students, we formed an endowment in 2016. Our endowment can ensure charitable gifts help the Blair School District and the community in perpetuity.
Special Projects – A great example of these efforts include the recently renovated BHS Auditorium.
The Foundation also works to maintain connections between Blair Alumni and the Blair Community School District.
