To Support and Inspire
 
 
The Downingtown Community Education Foundation
(EIN #261759996)
The role of the Downingtown Community Education Foundation is to garner private support and public engagement for the Downingtown Area School District.  As a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, the Foundation provides funding and extra resources for the students, teachers, and DASD schools. Money raised helps to cover the gap that exists between what school budgets can cover, and what is needed to ensure the academic success of our students.
 
Since its establishment in 2008, the Foundation has raised more than $360,000 to benefit our students, teachers and programs.
