Alexander Public School Foundation
The Alexander Public School Foundation is dedicated to enhancing the learning opportunities for Alexander students, for today and for many generations to come. This is accomplished by engaging the community in fundraising, and by providing a way for generous supporters to give all types of assets, tax-deductible donations, and charitable plans for the benefit of education at Alexander School.
The Alexander Public School Foundation was established in 2013 to provide generous donors with a way to make tax-deductible donations to enhance educational opportunities for students in the Alexander Public School. The APS Foundation exists to lend our support in increasing educational opportunities for our students, and we make funds available for projects and programs that fall outside of the general budget of the school.
Alexander is located in one of the most dynamic areas of the country, with our population and resources constantly evolving amidst the oil-based economy of NW North Dakota. Ten years ago the population of Alexander Public School was less than 75 students, but with steady population growth the past several years our student body count is approaching 300. The school has experienced many changes, including a necessary school building expansion and the re-appearance of many sports, music and arts, and extracurricular opportunities for our students. The APS Foundation is proud to have contributed funds essential to the success of many of these programs.
With this constant growth comes many growing pains, and the need for financial support for educational grants and student scholarships is more important than ever. We exist solely to lend our support in keeping Alexander Public School a great place to learn, for today and for the future.
The Alexander Public School Foundation is partnered with the North Dakota Community Foundation (NDCF), who provides committee training, gift processing and tax receipting, money management, and marketing and fundraising support.
