East Allen County Schools Educational Foundation director, Rose Fritzinger, was one of nearly 100 of Indiana’s public school education foundation leaders attending the 19th Annual Indiana Association of Public Education Foundations (INAPEF) Conference in Indianapolis on September 15, 2016.

Attendees heard presentations covering a variety of topics designed to improve education foundations’ fundraising capabilities, governance, operations, and community collaborations.

Indiana’s public education foundations provide opportunities for donors to give back to their schools by funding teacher and classroom grants, student scholarships, and district-wide initiatives.  Education foundations play an important role in Indiana communities, connecting private citizens with public education and providing resources to classrooms that otherwise would not be possible.

Statewide, INAPEF member education foundations raised an estimated $7.6 million during the past year and awarded more than $3.7 million in grants and scholarships back to their districts’ teachers and students.

The EACS Educational Foundation, founded in 2001, has been a member in good standing with INAPEF since 2003.  According to Fritzinger, “Listening to Bill Stanczykiewicz, Director of IU’s Lilly Family School of Philanthropy, was a tremendous experience for this year’s attendees. The knowledge shared was a great learning experience. Having the opportunity to discuss philanthropy with other Indiana public education foundation representatives was an experience this Conference provides annually to members and those interested in starting public education foundations.”

INAPEF is comprised of 62 public education foundations from around the state of Indiana. The mission of INAPEF is to serve as a resource to public education foundations and as a catalyst to increase community involvement for the enhancement of public education in the state of Indiana. Through its conferences, grants, training, and outreach, INAPEF provides valuable resources and information to provide strength and idea-sharing for revenue growth to Indiana’s public K-12 schools.
