Supporting Innovation in Learning



#GivingTuesday, November 27, 2018

The Shrewsbury Public Schools Colonial Fund has once again joined #GivingTuesday, a day dedicated to philanthropy.  We hope you will consider a local donation to the Colonial Fund, which promotes innovation and investment in the development of new ideas for our district.  In the past four years, the Colonial Fund has funded 3 speaker presentations, 8 projects that advanced adptation of technology in classroom instruction, and has facilitated the development of the Portrait of a Graduate program and the district's 5-year Strategic Priorities.  


This year, your donation will go to the transformation of the old "Tech Ed" classroom at Oak Middle School into a new "Design Lab" classroom and makerspace for the entire Oak school community.  The Colonial Fund has already added a few new pieces of equipment for this space, but with your help, we can expand the possibilities, with additional equipment, tools and engineering kits.  


On Giving Tuesday, your donation will be matched.  For every dollar we raise up to $6,500, Shrewsbury Public Schools Foundation, aka "The Garden Party" will match your gift.  Over seven years, the Garden Party event generously raised $239,000 for our schools.  This year, they want to make their final donation and challenge you to join them.

The Colonial Fund's mission is to promote a culture of innovation and to invest in the development of new ideas that support the district's Strategic Priorities.  Whether through engaging speakers, funding projects or training teachers, the Colonial Fund continuously strives to help students obtain the skills and knowledge for the 21st century.  

For more information on the projects we have supported, please see Funded Projects.

We are always grateful for those who share our vision to provide a world-class education to Shrewsbury students.  Your private donation can play a critical role in making it possible to try new ideas, test new approaches in teaching and to seize opportunities as they arise.  Please consider making a donation today. Donate today
