AEF awarded $10,000 grant from the Madison County Community Foundation

The Anderson Education Foundation (AEF) was awarded a $10,000 grant from the Madison County Community Foundation on April 18, 2024. This grant will support students through the Opportunity Fund.
AEF's Opportunity Fund serves to help high school and middle school students (grades 7-12) access funds which would otherwise serve as a barrier to their educational attainment while at ACS. 
This fund is generously supported by the Madison County Community Foundation and many generous donors with one common cause: to help provide opportunities for students of ACS  
The following are examples of areas where Opportunity Fund resources may be used:
  • Academic Fees
  • SAT
  • Dual Credit
  • CNA and Vocational Career Licensure
  • Uniforms/Clothing
  • Athletic Fees
  • Choir/Band Fees
  • Field Trips
  • Commencement Cap and Gown
  • And other participation or entry fees which may arise and serve as a deal-breaking barrier
Any Anderson Community Schools' (ACS) staff member may submit a form requesting money from the fund to be used for an identified student (in grades 7-12) need. Students in grades 7-12 may also request funds by asking their school principal, counselor, teacher, coach, or activity leader for completing an Opportunity Fund Request form.
