Golden Apple Foundation 

Golden Apple inspires, celebrates and  supports educational excellence in our community. We are seeking monetary donations for our grant program that will provide teachers with financial assistance for supplies during this challenging school year. This program gives teachers in Winnebago and Boone counties the opportunity to apply for a grant up to $300 for technology, equipment or books. 100% of your donation will go directly to teachers and checks will be presented in late-September. 
We also could use donations of office supplies including hundreds of 9×11 catalog envelopes, and reams of cream colored paper.
