About the Education EDGE

  • In 2003, the Board of Education created Wichita Public Schools Gift Funds to provide support for classroom mini-grants, athletics, and fine arts activities. This unique partnership with the Wichita Community Foundation allows all gifts received by the Education EDGE to be devoted to these three fund fund areas. As a 501(c)(3) organization, the Wichita Community Foundation is an independent public charity and all donations qualify for charitable contributions under IRS regulations.


    To learn more about the WPS Gift Funds' legacy and how you can help, please see the 2019 Education EDGE Annual Report and 2019-20 EDGE Donor Form and Information. You can also donate online at the Wichita Community Foundation's Donate Page. Click on "Other Fund" and then one of the three WPS Gift Funds: Athletics, Fine Arts, or Classroom Mini-Grant Gift Funds.WCFLogo
