Foundation

Your commitment can help make the difference!

The Maroa Forsyth School District Foundation was established in 1997. The Maroa-Forsyth School District Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation dedicated to enriching, enhancing and supporting the Maroa-Forsyth School District.

To keep pace with advances in technology and to maintain a progressive curriculum, the Maroa-Forsyth Schools need a reliable source of revenue seperate from the restricted, and often challenged, public funding.

Since inception over $130,000 has been invested in our children’s education at Maroa-Forsyth School District.

Our school district is truly fortunate to have families that have been and continue to be engaged in their children’s education which is an important reason our district does very well educationally.
