Elementary After-School Enrichment Program (ASEP)
Help us raise $50,000 by June 20 to keep this program in Ashland elementary schools for 2018-19!
In fall of 2017, ASF began offering a new after school program in the three elementary schools (Bellview, Helman, & Walker). This pilot program is administered by SOU Youth Programs who have decades of programming experience for educational programs for children. This is the first cohesive after school program in the Ashland School District.
Creating and administering the academic enrichment program takes considerable financial resources. Our recent annual fund drive was successful, but not at an increased level to maintain our established grant programs AND continue the after school elementary enrichment program. The ASF board must raise $50,000 by June 20 in order to set the planning in motion and commit our payments for this program for the next school year. We are working on acquiring a few large matching donations, but need donations at EVERY LEVEL in order to be successful. Whether you can contribute $10 or $10,000 - we need you!

2018 Annual Fund Drive
The 29th annual fund drive of the Ashland Schools Foundation kicked off in early April. Donors and all parents of students in the Ashland Schools were mailed donation requests, and four calling nights were held where volunteers came together to call potential donors and request support. These funds go to all sites in our school district to provide extra teachers, specialists and educational assistants; to provide funds for teachers who are implementing hands-on, innovative projects with their classrooms through our Impact Grants program; and to fully fund the Student Tutor Center and Science Lab Aides programs at Ashland High School.
The fund drive was moderately successful, but more donations are needed by December 31 to meet our goal for the year. Click on the blue DONATE NOW button above to make a single or recurring donation to the Ashland Schools Foundation. Your support is truly appreciated.
The NEW Robert W. Julian Track at Ashland High has been installed! We are still accepting donations to improve field event facilities and for needed equipment.
