About DPIE

Delano Partners in Education Foundation is committed to raising funds to enhance education opportunities for present and future Delano students.

Knowing there is no stable or guaranteed financial resources, the most powerful safeguard of Delano’s long term well-being is the building of the endowment.  The foundation is dedicated to developing supportive relationships between the community and schools that enrich the education of children.  Our goal is to build a $1M endowment in 10 years to help self-fund important needs such as technology (we are currently at about $100k).

Established in 2001 by a group of community leaders and educators, the foundation believes that every child deserves the best education.

What is an endowment?

An endowment fund is a permanent, self-sustaining source of funding.  Each year, a portion of the value of the fund is paid out to support the funds’ purpose, and any earnings in excess of this distribution are reinvested in the endowment.

Why should I invest in DPIE?

Delano students need to be competitive in an ever changing world.  With the uncertainty of ongoing funding, we need your support to invest in our schools.  Great schools mean great communities – and this investment will ensure that we maintain the level of excellence in our award winning schools district.
