Named Funds

Meaningful support for students and programs

Since its inception, the Shaker Schools Foundation has encouraged donations in honor or memory of a person or family or in support of a special program. Income from these funds helps support teaching and learning in the Shaker City Schools. Named funds help fulfill the mission of the Shaker Schools Foundation by supporting programs that enrich curricula, encourage and celebrate student achievement, provide professional development and enhance learning environments.
