Back Stories on Community Grant Growth Lochmead Dairy’s 50th Anniversary Celebration
Orchard’s Table was designated as an annual fundraiser and Education Together Foundation was their first recipient. The proceeds from that evening was added in 2016 to the Community and School Grants Endowment and will be distributed starting Fall, 2017 through the School Grants to the four schools in JCSD on an annual basis.


Swimming Pool Fund
A long term fundraising effort by many community members to construct a cover for the community swimming pool had been determined to be unattainable. This project, chaired by Orine Brunscheon, was never able to reach fruition. Those funds were passed to ETF with the direction that they be used to assist with funding swimming lessons at the community pool for children of the JCSD.



Tiger Alumni Scholarship Fund

In December 1999, the Education Together Foundation Board started a campaign to reach JCHS Tiger Alumni to establish an endowment scholarship for JCHS graduating seniors. Setting an initial goal of $30,000, they have now received donations exceeding $200,000 from over 700 JCHS alumni and from the Scandia Golf proceeds. The fund’s new goal is to raise $250,000.

ETF’s Tiger Alumni is challenging each JCHS graduating class to raise total funds equaling or exceeding their graduating year.
