Annual Report 2021

Dear Friends of the Appleton Education Foundation, 

So many things in our lives have changed over the past two years. The pandemic upended our world, in both big and small ways.   

How we “do” education in our community is different, too, with technology playing a more prominent role than ever before.  

We know one thing has not changed: Our amazing AASD educators show up every day to motivate, encourage, and inspire more than 15,000 students to be their best academically and socially.  

The Appleton Education Foundation is proud to show up for educators. AEF grants – a few hundred or a few thousand dollars at a time – empower educators to try new ways to spark students’ passion for learning.  

We are excited and proud to share this report, which highlights the past 18 months of grant making and other activity.
