About the Keystone Oaks Foundation for Educational Excellence

Keystone Oaks Foundation for Educational Excellence
In November 2016, a dedicated group of Keystone Oaks alumni and community leaders united with a shared goal: to enhance the Keystone Oaks School District with support from across our communities and alumni. This collaborative effort led to the creation of the Keystone Oaks Foundation for Educational Excellence, or KOFEE, in 2017, a 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to enriching student experiences through excellence and innovation. Our notable achievements, like the revitalization of the high school courtyard, stand as testaments to our commitment.

Now in 2024, our shared goal is more vital than ever. At KOFEE, we believe in the power of community to foster a thriving educational environment for every student. We invite you to join us—whether through attending events, volunteering, or making a financial contribution, your involvement makes a significant difference and is integral to our success and the success of our students.

We're expanding our reach and impact, focusing on fundraising and events aimed at providing scholarships and educational grants that will shape the futures of our young learners. We know you understand the value of investing in education. Your support not only enhances the learning experience of our students but also lifts up our entire community. Together, we can ensure that the Keystone Oaks School District remains a beacon of excellence and innovation. Let's continue to build a legacy of success for our children and our community.

Thank you for your continued support and dedication to our community's future.
