Kearney Public Schools enjoys a long-standing reputation of award-winning teaching, academic and extra-curricular activity success among its students, and students who are well-prepared for higher education after high school.

The Kearney Public Schools Foundation's sole mission is to keep KPS students and staff on the cutting edge in all areas of education. 

We provide financial assistance for grades K-12, by awarding grants to teachers who apply for these grants to implement innovative projects in their classrooms.  Twice each year, teachers apply for this funding, and last year, almost all were funded either fully or partially. We are proud to say that over $70,000 in grants were awarded in 2013.

We also work with schools in their fund-raising efforts for large projects, such as:

  • Kenwood Playground - Over $100,000 raised
  • Emerson Playground - Over $100,000 raised
  • KHS Media Productions Class - Over $21,000 raised
  • KHS Heavy Equipment Class - Over $150,000 raised
  • KHS Band "Strike up the Band" Campaign - Over $75,000 raised to date

Generous donations from businesses and individuals make these dreams possible, since current public school funding doesn't cover these things. 

All donors to the Kearney Public Schools Foundation are recognized for their contributions, and are a constant reminder every day to students and staff that they believe in their success and future growth.

Please join other interested business and individual donors in supporting Kearney's wonderful public school system.  Our children are fortunate to receive such a top-notch education.

Together, we can make a difference in the lives of many Keareny Public Schools students and staff!
