The AEF is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization with a mission to raise resources to enhance excellence in the Appleton Area School District and community.

Early Foundation leaders established an endowment to ensure the AEF’s long-term grant making ability.  While the AEF still works to build the unrestricted endowment, it requests and accepts contributions of the following types from individuals, corporations, private foundations and other non-public funding sources:

  • Restricted and Unrestricted Endowment
  • Unrestricted Non-endowment
  • Pass-through gifts for specific projects
  • Gifts in Kind

Gifts made to the Foundation are tax-deductible.  Donors may also gift stock, bonds, real estate, a life insurance policy, personal property or other assets.
