The Eudora Schools Foundation (ESF) announced today the award of more than $28,000 to fund 18 teachers’ innovative programs in the Eudora school district. The grants help teachers establish programs to enhance student learning and success. The ESF has awarded over 150 grants and funded over $115,000 in classroom educational initiatives since 2006. This year’s awards mark the highest amount of classroom grants given in the ESF’s 15-year history.

The Eudora Schools Foundation (ESF), the Jim Hoover Family and Kaw Valley State Bank are pleased to announce a $50,000 gift toward three projects in the Eudora School District. Announced at the USD#491 Board of Education meeting, the Jim Hoover Memorial and Kaw Valley State Bank’s gift is the single-largest gift in the ESF history.

The Eudora Schools Foundation (ESF) has raised $43,000 from the first-ever ESF Give Day on March 2nd. The total includes donations received from February 23 to March 5th.
 “Our initial goal was $15,000 for ESF Give Day. What was actually raised  was better than we ever dared to imagine,” said Matt Bova, ESF Board President. “You hope for the best and you believe you can reach your goal, but Eudora lapped it by a mile. We are all smiling and grateful here! I hope people understand that their generosity will make it so much easier for us to plan ahead. We will be looking for opportunities to honor our donors’ intentions and put these dollars right back into classrooms.”

The Eudora Schools Foundation (ESF) is pleased to announce it has received a $10,000 LiveWell Douglas County Community Wellness grant.

The grant provides funding for the creation of an outdoor learning and culinary arts center at the Eudora High School (EHS). This area is a new outdoor space on the north side of the building, outside of the Eudora DeSoto Technical Education Center (EDTEC).  The large concrete area will include an outdoor classroom shelter and a culinary arts outdoor kitchen.
