Why We Do This

The Vermillion School District is fortunate to have dedicated teachers and administrators working to make the schools excellent.  There is, however, always a need to expand educational opportunity and meet the needs of our children beyond the core program that is provided by the public schools.

School districts alone, unfortunately, cannot fund the additional financial support that schools and students require. The Vermillion Public Schools Foundation provides a means for our community to become involved in public education and to make a difference in our schools and the lives of our students. Funds raised in our communities will support innovative programs and provide and enrich educational opportunities. Your contribution will ensure the success of our children today and in the future.

How We Do This

The Vermillion Public Schools Foundation relies on funds that are raised from generous individuals, business sponsors, and from community members by direct appeals and through community-wide educational and social events. This is done using a variety of mechanisms, including:

  • General donations – cash, online giving, or pledged donations
  • Planned giving – wills, trusts, estate plans
  • Gifts of stock
  • Matched giving – donations matched by employers
  • Fund-raisers
