About watertown-mayer education foundation
We are an independent, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to gathering resources to enhance and enrich the educational experiences within the Watertown-Mayer Public School District.
The purpose of the Watertown-Mayer Education Foundation is to enhance the Watertown-Mayer School District's ability to deliver excellence in education for all students and to promote community understanding and support for public education. We will advance our mission by providing:
Financial support for existing or new educational programs and/or services from gifts received from our revenue base
Academic scholarships for Watertown-Mayer High School graduates enrolling in accredited higher education programs in a non-discriminatory manner
Instructional grants to Watertown-Mayer employees for the improvement of instructional strategies and/or staff development activities for district employees
Community outreach programs to increase community member awareness and support for Watertown-Mayer schools
Grants for co-curricular activities to increase diversity and visibility as well as support the economically disadvantaged
The Watertown-Mayer Education Foundation depends on community donations to fund programs and initiatives that serve children from birth through age 21 in the Watertown-Mayer Public Schools system, as well as scholarships for higher education.
Support for the foundation comes entirely through community contributions, including:
Parents, alumi and other community members
Fundraising events and projects
Gifts of stock, cash and securities

We are governed by our passionate volunteer board of directors comprised of community members, alumni, teachers, staff, parents and business people.
