Green for Green Power - #SummitGivesBack

Still time to VOTE - once per day until July 31!

We need your help! The Schools Foundation's Green for Greenpower project is one of six finalists chosen by the Community Foundation of Greater Huntsville to participate in its Summit Gives Back campaign. In order to make it into the funding phase of this program, Green for Greenpower will need to be one of the three videos to receive the most votes.

Greenpower is a STEM-based program that gives students an opportunity to use the skills they learn in school to design, build, and race an electric car. Help The Schools Foundation expand the Greenpower program across our three public school systems. Becoming one of the three finalists will help us get one step closer to adding one additional elementary school team and one additional middle or high school team in each of our three public school systems.

Here's how you can help: Go to and vote for our video. You can vote once per 24-hour period from each device you use until July 31st, 2017.

Watch this two minute video to learn why students love - and benefit from - Greenpower... then VOTE.

SAIL Sites Busy with Summer Learning

This summer, in partnership with The Community Foundation of Greater Huntsville, we launched SAIL - Summer Adventures in Learning at three local sites.  SAIL is a collective impact project that works to overcome summer learning loss.

As the picture depicts, the partnership brings funders, program providers, and the three school districts together to work collaboratively to improve student outcomes and preparedness for that EXCITING first day back to school.

We encourage you to follow #SAILSmart to see the great things happening this summer with our partners at Heart of the Valley YMCA, Madison City Schools, and the Village of Promise. Click here for more information.

Celebrating Our Superintendents: Building Our Endowment

The Schools Foundation Board of Directors recently hosted a Garden Reception at the home of Pam and Taze Shepard.  The Shepards graciously opened their beautiful home and garden in celebration of our local superintendents and as a time to update guests on The Schools Foundation Endowment.  Guests enjoyed brief remarks from Board Member Taze Shepard, Board President Don Nalley, and Executive Director, Elizabeth Fleming. Additionally, guests heard district specific remarks from Dr. Matt Akin, superintendent of Huntsville City Schools, Mr. Matt Massey, superintendent of Madison County Schools and Mr. Robby Parker, superintendent of Madison City Schools.

The Schools Foundation Endowment Fund will be a permanent source of capital that will provide a foundation of financial support for the Huntsville, Madison and Madison County School Districts. We have established the endowment to become a source of sustained, long-term funding for students today and students tomorrow.

Through this fund, we strengthen our promise to the community and school districts by supporting their work preparing over 53,000 students for the world ahead. The endowment distributions will enable the districts to operate creatively and provide unique opportunities for our students.

If you are interested in a gift to the endowment, please contact
Elizabeth Fleming at 256-535-2080.
