Enriching the educational opportunities available to students of Rochester CUSD 3A School District.

Mission Statement

The Rochester Education Foundation was founded in 2001 to serve as a link between the community and the schools. The mission of the Foundation is to raise and distribute funds for opportunities that enrich the educational experience, encourage creativity, innovation and excellence within our district. The Foundation provides resources beyond the normal operating budgets for educational programs and activities for students. Local businesses, individuals in the community and the school district working together can help to ensure a successful future for all students.

Growing Our Vision


The foundation will achieve its mission by channeling talents and funds into projects which:

  • Bring new technology into our classrooms

  • Enhance staff development and creativity

  • Encourage innovative programmatic initiatives

  • Work with and support other groups and/or individuals interested in contributing to the success of the Rochester CUSD 3A's educational mission.
