Centerville Education Foundation
The Centerville Education Foundation is a tax-exempt, non-profit organization founded in 1983 to enrich the education program in the Centerville City Schools. As its name suggests, the Foundation is devoted exclusively to education enhancement with its primary responsibility being to gain support from individuals, corporations, businesses, and foundations and distribute funds through a grant program for the benefit of students, faculty, and staff. To support its grant objectives, the Foundation conducts fund-raising programs. All proceeds are used to enhance education in Centerville City Schools.
At the outset, it is recognized Centerville Schools provide quality education and already have a significant advantage -- an outstanding faculty and administration, talented students, comprehensive curriculum and nationally-rated quality schools at all levels. The Foundation's program is focused on keeping the advantage not only for Centerville students but also the advantage that quality educational systems provide the greater Dayton area.
The work of the Foundation is administered by a board of trustees, all members of the community and all volunteers. The trustees work closely with the Board of Education and the superintendent. The Articles of Incorporation and the Foundation's Bylaws guide the administration of the Foundation.
