Foundation for Clovis Schools

How Your Donation Helps

Designated Donations & Endowments

Over the years, individuals and businesses who have fond memories of our schools or families who want to memorialize loved ones, have established annual designated donation programs or endowments to provide funds for scholarships and educational programs for years to come.

Examples of these designated donations and endowments are:
