Dear Friends of KAEF,

          Once again the Kiski Area Education Foundation is appealing to you for your annual support.  I am sure that you are aware of our efforts to assist our many worthy seniors with scholarships, our annual Innovative Educational Opportunity Grants for creative classroom practices and various purchases of needed classroom equipment, such as the 3D Printer for our high school technology education curriculum.  Any academic need, requested through your principals or supervisors, will always be carefully considered.


          In order to continue our mission we need your help.  This help may be in the form of attending and supporting our various fundraising events and, most critically, by becoming an annual financial supporter through donating at one of our membership levels.  We would ask that you consider giving through monthly payroll deductions, if you are not already doing so.  Of course, single donations are always greatly appreciated.


          If you are already giving through payroll deduction, we thank you for this continued support.  If you annually give through cash or check or if you are a first-time supporter, please print the attached form and send it to Mrs. Chris Pastva at Central Office.


We hope to hear from you and wish you great success and personal fulfillment this school year.
