Strategic Plan 2019-2024
The La Crosse Public Education Foundation is guided by a Strategic Plan that aims to fulfill our mission by increasing our impact in schools and strengthening the organization for the long term.
With input from key stakeholders — teachers, administrators, parents and community supporters — an updated Strategic Plan was adopted by the Board of Directors on Aug. 25, 2019. This five-year plan builds on a plan originally approved in 2015, and updated in 2017.
The plan maintains a commitment to our mission and focuses on four key strategies:
The mission of the La Crosse Public Education Foundation is to enhance learning opportunities for students in the School District of La Crosse and to promote community understanding and support for public education.
- Increase our impact and fulfill our mission to “enhance learning opportunities for students in the School District of La Crosse.”
- Expand our visibility and “promote community understanding and support for public education.”
- Improve fundraising, expand our base of regular donors and maintain or create development programs to support our mission.
- Strengthen the organization through sound management and financial practices supported by an involved and dedicated Board.
Among the major initiatives incorporated in the 2019-2024 plan are efforts to increase public recognition of the excellent teachers and staff in the School District of La Crosse, and also to expand grant opportunities by allowing for more rapid response to immediate needs and opportunities.
