What we do

We fund educational grants, programs, and equipment for West Irondequoit schools that can't be supported by the District's annual budget.


Our Impact


The Foundation has granted more than $960,000 to West Irondequoit Central School District Teachers and Programs.


" The Breakfast Club Grant was a success! Dake Junior High counselors started a club that meets weekly at 7 a.m., targeting select students to foster a readiness to learn and stronger connection to the Dake community. "
