The Appoquinimink Foundation provides a way for caring individuals and organizations to make private, tax-deductible contributions in support of education.
Our non-profit Foundation works to generate and distribute resources to the District that enrich, maintain and expand the programs needed to meet the District's stated mission of providing a world-class education where students gain the knowledge, understanding, skills and attitudes needed to contribute and flourish in a global society.
We generate private support for priority projects where tax dollars are not available. All contributions stay in the Appoquinimink School District and are used to benefit our students and schools.
Your gift, no matter how large or small, can make a difference to our childen, our teachers, and our schools. With your support, we can ensure that Appoquinimink is, and continues to be a premiere place of learning. We can also ensure that the students who call our District home, follow in our footsteps, and live and work in our community are prepared for success now and in the future.
Our Focus:
  • To encourage and recognize academic excellence.
  • To support classroom initiatives that promote quality and innovation.
  • To be fiscally sound and financially responsible with all assets.
  • To perpetuate the Foundation's projects, programs and activities through the endowment.
  • To ensure and increase community and public involvement in our school district.
  • To encourage alumni support through individual and class gifts or memorials as a way of giving back to the school and community.
  • To publicize and promote the Appoquinimink Foundation and its activities.
