The State College Area School District Foundation exists to support major fundraising and ongoing development efforts for the district and its nine elementary schools, two middle schools, and high school. Donations to the Foundation directly benefit students by providing an environment in which skills, interests, and abilities can be nurtured and developed to a higher degree than the regular budget permits.
