How will the funds be spent?

Project proposals will be submitted by the staff members in each school district.  Other projects may also be submitted for consideration by the Foundation from individuals, groups, and businesses.

Who determines how the funds will be spent?

Spending decisions will be made by the Foundation leadership, a board of directors made up of local citizens interested in education.
