About the Foundation
The Falcon Foundation was established in June of 2006 to provide financial resources for the educational enrichment for the students in the Connellsville Area School District. A generous community of volunteers which include alumni, parents, retired teachers and active community members comprise our organization.
How the Foundation Works
A volunteer Board of Directors, who operate independently from the Connellsville Area School District Board, is responsible for raising and determining how the funds are allocated throughout the school district. Teachers submit requests to their building Principal. The request is forwarded to the Superintendent who in turn submits the request to the Foundation for consideration.
The Goal of the Foundation
The Falcon Foundation envisions an educational community that is committed to developing the mind, body and spirit of each student and fostering an environment which prepares each one to meet life’s challenges. Public funds can no longer provide for every student’s individual education needs. The strains of less monies and greater expenses have decreased the possibility for educational needs for all children. Public schools need additional funding for new and innovative program offerings as well as providing the fundamental aspects of education.
How You Can Help
A contribution to create a lasting legacy through the fund can be made in a variety of forms:
- Gift of cash

- Life Insurance Paid Policies

The Falcon Foundation has been established as a not-for-profit community endowment tax exempt from federal income tax under section 501 © (3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
We can make a difference in a life of a child if we all work together as a community. It takes a village to raise and educate a child.
