Impact Education, Empower Strategic Innovations & Build Partnerships with our Community
The Panther Foundation mission is to impact the education of all students, empower strategic innovations and to be a bridge between the community, students, and staff of the Spring Lake Park School District.
Support for the volunteer, community-based Foundation comes entirely through contributions and special projects. These contributions are turned into grants awarded by the Foundation for innovative projects initiated by staff, parents, and students. Since 2004, the Foundation has awarded over $701,000 to fund over 193 projects and initiatives. For some highlights and more reasons you should give click here.
