Why Does Our School District Need Private Funding?
Communities across Ohio who reap the benefits of a partnership between their education foundation and school district have some of the strongest property values even in real estate market fluctuations. These communities remain strong only with the support of an education foundation such as OSF to help fund programs that go above and beyond state minimums.
With significantly less money available from state sources, local school boards are continually forced to cut or reduce programs considered “non-essential” by the state government, but highly valued by students and parents, such as music, art and athletics.
The best public schools and school districts are truly a public/private partnership.
