The Greyhound Foundation

The Greyhound Foundation and its Board of Trustees and its committee members is comprised of volunteers from our community and our school district. 

A growth-oriented and strong partnership between the Greyhound Foundation and the Directors of our School Board is a positive, highly engaged, and active conversation.  Supported by the Trustees, both individually and collectively, we are strengthening the Foundation’s role.  We are embarking on an ambitious journey and together with our community partners will create and enhance the school environment at all levels for our students. Both organizations, the Board of School Directors and the Greyhound Foundation, realize that public school funding has become a critical issue in our country.   With your support, the time is now to take the work of the Foundation to a higher level.  

The Greyhound Foundation was established in 2001.  It serves to expand and develop educational opportunities for all students within our district. We encourage and support academic enhancement, innovation, transformational change, staff development, and scholarships. In accordance with the Shippensburg Area School District (Greyhound) Foundation Bylaws, as amended by Trustee action duly taken on January 16, 2013, the function of the Shippensburg Area School District (Greyhound) Foundation is to enhance and enrich the educational programs for our students. The Foundation shall operate so as to not commit any act which would result in it's losing its tax exempt status under existing federal law.
