STUDENT INSPIRATION FOUNDATION
2013

BACKGROUND

The Inspiration Foundation has been established to help fund projects initiated by members of the education community of School District No. 79 (Cowichan Valley).The Foundation had an initial funding of $250,000 to be expended over five years. A second former school district graduate has come forward with another $60,000 to provide for expanded educational opportunities in SD79. Initially, the money supported projects at the secondary level, but this has been expanded to include middle schools as well.

PURPOSE

The purpose of the Student Inspiration Foundation is to provide funding for new initiatives that have the potential to improve student achievement and/or motivate and inspire students to explore possibilities beyond their present experience. It is also intended to foster change by allowing individual teachers, groups of teachers and even entire staffs to explore new initiatives which, hopefully, will be of long term benefit for students in School District No. 79.
