Tri-Creek Education Foundation

We are parents, teachers, community members and administrators who believe in the potential of the youth of the Tri-Creek area. Bound together by a common goal of funding programs which fall outside of normal funding, or which cannot be funded. This includes scholarships to deserving students. Our purpose is to raise the funds necessary to educate our youth in new ways and improve on the traditional methods. Through tax deductible donations to the foundation, we will be giving our children the tools they need to go on to higher education. Our children's goals will soon be the goals of our community and to achieve their dreams is to achieve our own. The Tri-Creek Education Foundation, Inc. is a 501c3 Tax Deductible Foundation.

Our logo symbolizes the flame of learning, with three flames, one for each of the three townships in which our students live. It is this flame which the Tri-Creek Education Foundation, Inc. fuels through funding innovative educational programs, scholarships and program grants. A forward looking group of parents, community leaders and educators established this foundation in 2000 with the hope of creating a self sustaining source of funding for the future.
