We believe all children deserve access to a quality education. Children right here in Northwest Arkansas need your help. Donate to the Rogers Public Education Foundation – you have an amazing opportunity to make a real, lasting impact on their lives.
While their basic needs are met, all too often our classroom teachers are forced to use their own resources to purchase programs or materials to enrich their classroom teaching. The grants awarded by the RPEF benefit every child in the Rogers School District, including Lowell and Garfield. Teachers who are awarded grants are able to enhance learning for each child in their classroom for multiple years without having to spend money out of their own pockets.
You can make a difference! Consider these facts:
- 59% of students in the Rogers School District are eligible for free or reduced lunch
- There are 23 schools in the Rogers School District with over 15,000 students, and many of these students have limited access to technology and other resources outside of school
- The average teacher spends $500 or more out of their own pocket to purchase materials for their classroom
