Our Mission: 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.
FORWARD is a 501(c)(3) organization that distinguishes itself as a means for private giving separate from the core school district budget. The foundation:
Solicits, manages and distributes funds solely to the School District of River Falls
Enhances learning opportunities for students by further enriching the curricula
Empowers educators by funding new learning tools and initiatives
Is run entirely by an all-volunteer board of community members
Since our establishment in 2012, the FORWARD Foundation has awarded more than $145,000 for innovative projects in the River Falls schools! Every school in the District has benefited from FORWARD grants.
Examples of past grants include WiFi hot spots, a 3D printer, ukuleles for youth, a pottery wheel, and intramural sports equipment.
