What is the Foundation for Sanger Unified Schools?
The Foundation is an independent, non-profit corporation that was organized in 2005 to support the educational efforts of the Sanger Unified School District. The Foundation is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors made up of local business, community, and educational leaders.
Support from the Foundation is a crucial component in the District’s ability to meet community expectations for the educational goals of our students. The overall goal of the Foundation is to help expand and maintain programs with a focus on funding new and innovative educational programs and initiatives.
Foundation efforts continue to be essential in preparing our children for the highly competitive and evolving world they will face.
