The mission of the Foundation is to maintain the integrity of the school. Your donations offset a real and recurring budget gap that would significantly impact the school if we could not meet the Foundation’s fundraising goals. In Underwood’s 2015-2016 school year the Foundation filled a shortfall equivalent to two full-time teaching positions.

Together we are the solution to these budget gaps! We thank you for your support!
