What We Do
At the West Des Moines Community Schools Foundation, we're dedicated to enhancing the educational experience for every student in the West Des Moines Community School District. Through innovative programs, strategic partnerships, and unwavering support, we aim to empower students to reach their full potential and thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.
Investing in Education
We believe that education is the key to unlocking endless opportunities for our students. That's why we work tirelessly to raise funds and allocate resources where they're needed most. From providing scholarships to deserving students to funding essential classroom initiatives, we're committed to investing in the future of our community by investing in education.
We understand the critical role educators play in shaping the minds and futures of our students. That's why we're dedicated to supporting our teachers and staff through professional development opportunities, grants for innovative classroom projects, and recognition programs that celebrate their hard work and dedication.
Enriching Student Experiences
Education is about more than just textbooks and tests—it's about inspiring curiosity, fostering creativity, and nurturing a lifelong love of learning. That's why we're proud to sponsor a wide range of enrichment programs and extracurricular activities that provide students with opportunities to explore their interests, develop new skills, and discover their passions outside of the classroom.
Building Stronger Communities
We believe that strong schools are the foundation of strong communities. By collaborating with local businesses, community organizations, and passionate individuals, we're able to leverage our collective resources and expertise to create a brighter future for all. Together, we can make a meaningful and lasting impact on the lives of our students and the vitality of our community.
