About Us-Corning Education Foundation

The Corning Education Foundation is a nonprofit 501(C)(3) corporation chartered in December 1994.  While the foundation operates independently from the Southwest Valley Community School District, it shares a vision of enhancing education in our schools.  The foundation fosters creative and innovative approaches to education through private grants and scholarships.  Funds contributed to the foundation support the students and staff to ensure academic excellence.

It is the desire of the trustees of the Corning Education Foundation to establish an organization, which encourages and rewards innovation in the classroom now and in the future. The foundation provides educational enrichment opportunities beyond what is provided within the budget of school.  A permanent endowment will be created by collecting tax-deductible gifts.  The interest from the endowment will be used to provide monetary support to Southwest Valley Community Schools.
