One year ago we were on the verge of holding our 2020 fund drive, and had to stop everything.
Schools closed, we all sheltered in place, and there were so many unknowns for our future. We had no idea whether ASF would have any funds available to grant to schools this year; we should have known that we could rely on our donors. Our local community supported us so strongly during this past year of crisis that we were actually able to strengthen our grant programs!
Since last school year, we've expanded Classroom Impact Grant eligibility for teachers (fulfilling a record number of grant requests), and re-vamped our larger Education Support Grant process to support district and school-wide needs more than ever before. [Read about this year's grant programs HERE]
It was all accomplished because of our partnership with you, our community supporters - none of this would be possible without your financial support. Your donations make it all happen, and we hope that you will join us with a gift to our 2021 Annual Fund Drive for grant programs in the next school year.

Your Shopping Can Support Ashland Schools!
At this point, more than ever, we encourage you to support our local businesses for any needs. But with the temporary closure of so many retailers, you may be shopping online for things you would have purchased locally. If so, there are simple ways for your shopping dollars to also benefit the Ashland Schools!
Visit our Shop to Support page to see which national and local retailers have programs that allow you support Ashland Public Schools - just by shopping! When you buy from these stores, a percentage of your purchase is donated back to ASF.
