The Women’s Giving Circle is an innovative way to play a role in the education of Olathe students. A donation of $100 will allow you to be a part of the Women’s Giving Circle. In September 2016, more than 80 women each cast a single vote. The $10,000 winning grant went to The Language Experience, a program that will give English Language Learners opportunities to strengthen and increase their vocabulary through hands-on activities and field trips.
The next OPSF Women’s Giving Circle event is scheduled for April 27, 2017. The area of focus is innovation and will grant $15,000 to the winning project. Olathe teachers are to identify a problem/challenge impacting student acheivement and then submit a grant proposal stating how they would address that problem/challenge utilizing resources funded with the grant.
