Why the Lower Dauphin Falcon Foundation was started.
In 2006, a group of concerned residents in the Lower Dauphin School District had the vision and starting the Lower Dauphin Falcon Foundation made sense for several reasons:
- LD has many worthwhile programs and innovative ideas that cannot be implemented using the limited funds derived from tax dollars.
- The district continues to grow rapidly. The increasing size of district makes it even more important to find alternate funding sources.
- Many district residents, graduates and companies have a strong affiliation with the district. The Foundation provides a vehicle for these supporters to help Lower Dauphin maintain its position as one of the finest districts in the state.
- As a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, the Foundation is eligible to apply for and receive funding from private foundations and government sources that might not otherwise be available to the district.
