Invest in your community

 

The Legacy Foundation, a 501(c)3 organization, was created to encourage individuals and corporations to provide financial and in-kind support to Sanford Schools. When you give to the Foundation, you make an investment in the future of our students by affording the opportunity to enhance educational opportunities that may otherwise be unavailable due to state funding shortfalls and restrictions. When you give, you open up possibilities for the next generation of our community.

There are many ways you can support Sanford students, faculty and programs.  Your gift may be unrestricted or you may restrict your donation and designate it to apply to a specific program, purpose or endowment fund. Most contributions qualify as charitable deductions through federal and state income taxes. As with all financial considerations, discuss potential tax advantages and other aspects of giving with financial experts.

Here are some options:
