In 1996 a group of concerned residents in the Cumberland Valley School District had the vision to create the Eagle Foundation. Starting the Foundation made sense for several reasons.
- Cumberland Valley has many worthwhile programs and innovative ideas that simply cannot be implemented using the limited funds derived from tax dollars.
The District continues to grow rapidly. The increasing size of Cumberland Valley ’s student population makes it even more important to find alternate funding sources for some activities.
- Many District residents, graduates and companies have a strong affiliation with the District. The Foundation provides a vehicle for these supporters to help Cumberland Valley maintain its position as one of the finest Districts in Pennsylvania .
As a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, the Foundation is eligible to apply for and receive funding from private foundations and government sources that might not otherwise be available to the District.
