Panthers for a Purpose Fund-A-Dream - Career and College Pathways

The Panthers for a Purpose Fund-A-Dream focus this year is career and college readiness across grade levels. Donations support more real-world experiences beyond the core, specialized equipment, technology and materials and connect students to community and industry partners. There’s still time to donate to this year’s Fund-A-Dream! We’ve raised more than $25,000 so far. You can help grow that by donating online. Thanks to everyone who participated in all of the Week of Giving and Panthers for a Purpose efforts.
