Osborn School District Educational Foundation 2022 Fundraising Plan
OSDEF is an avid supporter of education in the Osborn School District!
We provide direct funds to teachers, principals, and the superintendent every year. These funds are given directly to classrooms via our three signature programs: KidsRead, Teacher Mini-Grants, and After-school Sports Programming. Additional funding is made available through our Request for Funding Program (RFF).
KidsRead puts books in the hands of 3rd graders for home libraries
Teacher Mini-Grants award up to $300 for innovative classroom projects for students
After-School Sports Programming—self explanatory
Requests for Funding are awarded for innovative teacher, grade level, school level or district level programs in amounts in excess of $300 with no top cap
In order for OSDEF to raise funds, we host a variety of events and drives.
This year we plan to:
Host our first annual Happy Hour at OHSO Brewery and Distillery at the 4900 E. Indian School location in the Spring of 2022
Unveil a new award: OSDEF’s Recognition of Outstanding Service in the Spring of 2022
AND we are proud to host our annual Teacher of the Year (TOY) award again in the Fall of 2022*.
*We were unable to provide this our Fifth Annual Teacher of the Year celebration last year due to COVID so we are excited to be back!

Ways We Help
Meaningful Work. Unforgettable Experiences.
Supporting The Superintendent and Principals
Via this initiative, we are able to support goals and directions of the administration of the district as a whole, and to each individual school
Classroom Level Initiatives
Through our engaging semiannual grant opportunities to teachers we are able to lend support to innovative programs that individual teachers are working to implement in their classes.
