KWPSEF - Building the Arts
To raise money to enhance and expand educational opportunities for King William County through community-wide participation and philanthropy. The first goal of the KWPSEF is to fund eventual construction of a fine arts complex.
Funding the construction of an auditorium in King William County has often been discussed. In the spring of 2006, a group formed, with the plan of making that dream become a reality. The King William Public Schools Education Foundation (KWPSEF) was created and is now a tax-exempt, nonprofit charitable Foundation dedicated to supporting King William County Public Schools' mission of success through quality learning. The board of directors includes parents, teachers, administrators, and ex-officio members of the School Board.
You may ask, "Who would this building be for and who does it benefit?" King William is one of the only surrounding counties to not have a proper auditorium. In addition to the students and school faculty, community groups such as local churches, businesses such as Dawn's School of Dance, and other organizations could use the facility as well. Thus benefiting the school and the county financially by allowing King William to host events.
How can you help?
More than your money, although we will take that too, we need your thoughts and time. You can come to our meetings and give your input
and help us brainstorm. We meet the second Monday of each month at
6:30 p.m. in the King William High School conference room. We rotate
between business and work-session meetings. We need help with grant
writing, publicity, fundraising, and other tasks. You could sign up to be
called upon to volunteer when we need extra help with our special
events. You could become a member of the KWPSEF Players. Please
see our donation page for more details.
