Palmerton Area School District Fund
The Palmerton Area School District Fund
This Fund is intended to support enhancements to the activities, programs, and facilities of the Palmerton Area School District, and to provide new opportunities for the district.
In order to continue providing consistent high-quality education opportunities, Palmerton Area School District has established this charitable fund to supplement and enhance student needs beyond the basics of what the district is required or able to provide. With these funds, existing programs can be enhanced and new initiatives can be launched.
The Palmerton Area School District Fund can help:
- provide access to various learning opportunities such as field trips, summer programs, or after-school clubs and activities;
- purchase curriculum enhancing equipment and materials
- provide emergency temporary assistance to students in dire need due to poverty and food or housing insecurity;
- and more
Interested community members may donate to the Palmerton Area School District’s Fund using the form below or by contacting the Carbon County Community Foundation to discuss alternate gift options. Donations may be unrestricted for the District to use as needed; given for an expressed purpose or activity; or to used to establish scholarships for students.
The District and/or Fund donors may designate assets to be endowed, which means funds shall be invested and the spending will be restricted for designated purposes.
Charitable “Fund” Not Foundation
In lieu of starting a private foundation, the Palmerton Area School District has opted to partner with the Carbon County Community Foundation to save time and administrative overhead and benefit from the Foundation’s expertise in charitable giving. On behalf of the Palmerton Area School District Fund, the Community Foundation is set up to receive gifts of all kinds from donors — one-time or recurring donations, cash or check, credit card, ACH transfers, charitable gift annuities or trusts, stock, or other real property. Donors may opt for recognition or anonymity and can arrange to make a gift now or beyond their lifetime as part of a will or estate plan. Contact the Foundation to begin the discussion of how you can support the Palmerton Area School District Fund.
