FORWARD is a nonprofit education foundation that supports the School District of River Falls. We raise private funds to enhance creative learning initiatives that engage, challenge, and inspire students.


The purpose of FORWARD is to enhance learning opportunities for students by further enriching the curricula. We accomplish this by providing annual cash grants to create and implement innovative educational programs.  Grants are awarded each spring through a competitive process. To learn more about out our grant process, please visit our Grant Application page.


Throughout the year FORWARD holds community fundraising events to help support the grant program.
