The Conway Public Schools Foundation was established in March 2007 by the Conway Board of Education, which unanimously approved the creation of an endowment from donations, gifts and bequests. The foundation provides philanthropic support, above and beyond the district’s operating budget, for a variety of initiatives that enhance the academic experience of every student in Conway Public Schools.
The mission of the Conway Public Schools Foundation is to empower educators to elevate the student experience.
The vision of the Conway Public Schools Foundation is to be recognized as the philanthropic catalyst for innovative, equitable, and transformational student experiences.
Our core values guide our decisions, behavior, and efforts.
- Integrity guides our behavior
- We insist on a culture of diversity & inclusion
- Excellence is our standard
- We are drivers of innovation.
