Bargains Galore Thrift Store supported the Educational Foundation of Waupun by donating $500 to the foundation. The mission of the foundation is to promote excellence in education through the use of private resources. The foundation provides a link between public and parochial schools in the Waupun Area School District by providing grants to teachers and scholarships to students.

This year, $6,000 in scholarship money has been divided between Central Wisconsin Christian (CWC) and Waupun Area High School (WAHS), given to students who best meet the criteria and pursue post-secondary studies. Approximately $5,000 in grant money was divided this year by CWC and schools in Waupun area school district to teachers who submitted innovated projects who focus on using media and/or technology to supplement current curriculum that would otherwise be unavailable to them within school budgets.

These initiatives are possible because of donations from local businesses like Bargains Galore Thrift Store, civic, private sectors and individuals. The Education Foundation is prepared to manage bequests, endowments and funds. Contributions to the foundation are tax-deductible. More information regarding the foundation can be found at www.waupunK12.wi.us
