Russellville School Foundation

Who Are We?

The Russellville School Foundation is an independent, non-profit organization (pending tax exemption status) that will provide supplemental funding to support academic excellence for students, teachers and school administrators of the Cole R-I School District.

The Foundation will award grants to fund educational projects and school activities that may not otherwise be supported by the school district due to limited financial resources.

The Foundation also supports programs and initiatives that align with the Cole R-I School District’s priorities.

Frequently Asked Questions

Answer: The Foundation and the Board of Education are two separate entities working toward the same goal: the betterment of our schools.
