Since 2008 and because of the generous gifts from Jamestown alumni and friends, the Jamestown Area School District Foundation has distributed over $28,500 of donations. They have supported:

· our students’ trips to Camp Fitch, national drug prevention conferences, band festivals, a space launch, national Academic Games, the Galapagos Islands, Italy, Costa Rico, and Germany,

· summer camp experiences,

· many club activities, including the Environmental Club and the Yearbook Club, and

· the Library, among other things.

For example this past year, we continued our annual contribution of $750 to the 6th grade Camp Fitch trip. We also helped seven students with $895 in scholarships to have enriched summer experiences through our Summer Scholarship Program. We contributed $200 to help install a large screen announcement board in the JHS cafeteria and $250 for a Yearbook Club camera. We assisted our fantastic band with $1,500 as they march in the 93rd Shenandoah Apple Blossom Festival in Winchester VA. Finally we are supporting our group of Jamestown students as they make a memorable trip to Spain and Portugal this summer, donating $900 thus far with matching support pledged. We also hire the Computer Club each year to keep our website up-to-date. 

We see the rewards your contributions that “believe in our youth” make and are thrilled to make awards that make a difference for our Jamestown students.We are also grateful for the trust given to us by those who donate to the Jamestown Are School District Foundation. 


We can guarantee that we remain mindful of and steadfast to our founding mission.
