Thank you to all of the 2400 plus that came out to support the Foundation on Saturday. We had record crowds, great performances, a tremendous vendor alley and a wonderful time. We were able to exceed our expectations on funds raised for the students, teachers and schools of Paulding County and had so much volunteer support from many locals groups like New Seasons Church, Paulding Kiwanis, the YMCA, the high school BETA programs and Paulding County High School Science club. More to come. Save the date for the next big thing . . . Casino Royale at WellStar Paulding Hospital on February 11th!!

Teacher of the Year Testimonial

Post Date: July 06, 2016 Categories: Events

Dear Mr. McMichen,

Thank you so much for the honor of being named the Paulding County School District Teacher of the Year! Angela Barnett Everything for the ceremony and the luncheon were beautifully done! It is very clear how much the Paulding County Education Foundation does to support and uplift the teachers of our county. I was also overwhelmed with the good wishes and support from all of the sponsors, and I am in the process of writing and mailing personal thank you notes.

I am very proud and honored to both serve and represent Paulding County, but I would also like to give back. Please know that I will be happy to help in any volunteer work or lend a hand in any of your wonderful endeavors to support our community and our teachers. Giving back is the only way I can accept all of the wonderful gifts that the Foundation and its sponsors have bestowed on me. Please do not hesitate to contact me, and thank you again for all the Paulding County Education Foundation's work in supporting both our community and our teachers.

Thank you again,
Angela Barnett

Gimme 5 For Education

Post Date: November 09, 2015 Categories: Donations, Programs, Fundraiser

2016 marks the 10th year for the Paulding Education Foundation. The Foundation has historically raised money through special events and fostering key relationships with our corporate partners. This has allowed us to grow to where we are today and it is thrilling to know that we have been able to give out over 40 scholarships and 15 school/department grants in just the past two years.

Did you know that the foundation gives out more money per capita than our neighboring education foundations?

But, we still have a significant gap in what we have been able to give out, and the number of request we see each year. We see over $82,000 in school grant requests and over $130,000 in scholarship requests each year. It is our mission to fund as many of these requests as we can and that is why we are asking for your help.

This year our District is participating in the "Gimme 5 for Education" campaign in support of the Paulding Education Foundation! Each school is looking to raise $3,000 between now and December 15th. Every dollar raised will help move us closer to our goal AND as a thank you, every student who donates at least $10 will be entered into a school-wide drawing to win 2 movie tickets!

Join us in our mission to provide unparalleled opportunities for our students in Paulding County. Give a high five to education! Please show your support by returning the attached form with your tax-deductible contribution to the school no later than December 20th.
