A Message from the President

The Kyrene Foundation, in partnership with the Kyrene School District, is a tremendous resource to our educational community. As a 501(c)(3), The Kyrene Foundation partners with local businesses, non-profit organizations, and community supporters to provide essential assistance to our students and families.

Our key initiatives align with the following focus areas:

  • Partnership with school administration to bring opportunities, including outreach services, prevention initiatives, leadership and volunteer programs, which positively impact school-wide culture and climate
  • Kyrene Family Resource Center which provides including medical, dental, food, clothing and family crisis assistance
  • Student Scholarships for extra-curricular and student enrichment programs such as sports, arts, and academic support
  • Educational grants, new teacher gift cards and recognition awards for staff and students

There are many exciting events and opportunities to assist the Foundation in the 2022-2023 school year! I look forward to seeing you at our signature events this year including the Taste of Kyrene and the Kyrene Golf Classic.

The Kyrene Foundation exists due to the wonderful support of the Kyrene community. Thank you so much for your support and enjoy an exciting school year!
