Birth of the Ridgway Elker Advancement Foundation

Staff Writer

The Ridgway Area School District Administration and Board of Directors are proud to announce the pending formation of the Ridgway Elker Advancement Foundation. This new foundation will operate as a charitable nonprofit organization that will seek to support the Ridgway Area School District and the communities that support and rely on that district. The foundation will be registered with the Commonwealth of Pa. as a not-for-profit corporation. The foundation will seek and gain acceptance as a 501(c) 3 tax-exempt entity with the Internal Revenue Service. The entity will receive community support in the form of grants, contributions, and memorials and will use those funds to satisfy the objectives of the governing board of the foundation. The foundation will operate in a professional manner and will be governed with best practices. The foundation board will be independent of the School Board and the Administration.
