In 1988, a group of dedicated business and community leaders created the District 50 Education Foundation (now the Westminster Public Schools Foundation) to enhance education for students and staff of Westminster Public Schools. Outside fundraising was necessary, and still is, as education budgets keep getting cut.

Changing Students’ Lives

One Scholarship, One Tutor, One Pair Of Eyeglasses At A Time

Westminster Public Schools is a diverse community with students coming from all walks of life. A significant number of our children come from low-income families and some are even homeless. Many of our older children work 20 hours a week while still in school. We know their stories and are inspired by their perseverance. For some of these students the challenges seem almost insurmountable, but we know that is not true. The Foundation, with the help of the community, changes lives.

The goals of the Foundation are:

  • Enhance and enrich educational opportunities
  • Support staff for innovative efforts
  • Mobilize community support and encourage involvement
  • Build community awareness of the Foundation
  • Inspire parents, businesses and the local community to participate with the school district in enriching education through innovative means.

The Board developed a 2020 Strategic Vision Plan that seeks to build a stronger future of growth in the number of students positively impacted by the Foundation through enhanced opportunities in public education. It provides the overall direction to which the Foundation can assess and evaluate opportunities to serve more 100% of the board contributes financially to the Foundation.
