The Tempe Union High Schools Education Foundation sponsors and donates to the following:
The Tempe Union High Schools Education Foundation donated $2000 to the Tempe Community Council's Youth and Families program to help supply personal care items and additional support information for "We Care" bags for our students in need. A total of 500 young women's and men's bags went to five of Tempe Union's High Schools and three Tempe Middle Schools.
Tempe Union High School District encourages the families of students attending college to complete the FAFSA application. This is required when requesting financial assistance for the student’s education. FAFSA Events are held throughout the district to provide information to parents and students about the application process. The Foundation provides support by supplying $100 Visa cards for raffles these events in order to promote and encourage attendance.
After battling the restriction of COVID-19 during the 2020-2021 school year, the Tempe Union High Schools Education Foundation held raffles for all Tempe Union district employees. One hundred $50 restaurant gift certificates were raffled over three weeks in April 2021 to show appreciation for these employees and their dedication to the students. In addition, the purchase of these restaurants cards supported the various restaurants in the community.
Thank you to all the employees for everything you have done for our students through these unusual times.
