Kirkwood School District Foundation

A nonprofit organization

Thanks in advance for your support and commitment to supporting Kirkwood Kids and public education in the Kirkwood community! Your donation to KSDF benefits staff & students and determines the giving power of our Foundation. Your gifts to KSDF made it possible to "Say Yes!" to the following over the last year:
• Granting to Schools: In 2022, KSDF awarded $5,000 grants to each of our five elementary schools, two middle schools, and Kirkwood Early Childhood Center.
• Bestowing More Named Awards: In May 2022, KSDF presented over $92,000 in Named Award Scholarships to 28 KHS Seniors and three underclassmen. We are set to do the same or more in May 2023.
• Celebrating Diversity & Supporting Inclusion: In September 2022, KSDF sponsored Unified Night Lights. We purchased the pre-game meal with KSDF sponsor Mike Duffy's and gave take-home uniform shirts, purchased with donor grants, to all participants. We also sponsored the annual Many Cultures, One Kirkwood event celebrating the vast variety of cultures in our community.
• Launching New Enrichment Grants: In October 2022, we launched Enrichment Grants to directly supplement work on behalf of students. Any KSD staff or school-sponsored group may apply quarterly for help in their efforts. So far, we have given nearly 20 Enrichment Grants to deserving teachers for their classrooms and programs.
• Growing Our Legacy Fund for the Walker Natatorium: Funded by a grant from the Walker Foundation and completed in 2015, The Walker Natatorium is the first competitive pool on the campus of KHS. For the first time in school history, students can learn to swim as part of the physical education curriculum, and Pioneer swim & dive and water polo teams have a home for practices and competitions. Our pool also hosts Special Olympics Athletes and has helped train hundreds of area lifeguards. Your support helps protect this facility for generations to come through The Legacy Fund.

These are just a few of our many investments that made a lasting difference for our students, faculty, and the Kirkwood community. Please consider supporting KSDF this year with a donation via Give STL Day. Together we can continue to enrich our students and equip the Foundation to make even greater impacts in the years ahead.
