Donate to the Foundation

The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization. We collect donations from individuals and other sponsors and in coordination with the Saline Area Schools district, we direct that money to teaching grants, district-wide grants, and specific building projects. Our grants play an important role funding educational initiatives that cannot be funded by the general budget.

Many Ways to Make a Difference


Your tax-deductible gift will be put to use directly supporting the school district. Donations of all sizes from $1 to $10,000+ are welcome and strengthen the Foundation.


Including a charitable bequest in your will or trust for FSAS is a true expression of dedication and will be a lasting legacy.


You may have specific giving in mind such as an endowment, a gift of stock, or similar special gift. Contact us to discuss further!

Our grants have touched every corner of the Saline Area School District for over 30 years.


Thank you for supporting the Foundation for Saline Area Schools.  My husband and I chose to move to Saline solely for the school district and to raise our kids in this amazing community.  Our kids started in kindergarten and they are both in high school now.  I can personally attest to how blessed they are for having the experiences that Saline Area Schools has to offer.  Our community is incredibly lucky to be a part of a school system with staff and teachers who are innovative and thrive in seeing their students succeed. Thank you for your financial support.

  • To be informed of the identity of those serving on the organization’s governing board, and to expect the board to exercise prudent judgment on its stewardship responsibilities.
  • To have access to the organization’s most recent financial statements.
  • To be assured their gifts will be used for the purposes for which they were given.
  • To receive appropriate acknowledgement and recognition.
  • To be assured that information about their donations is handled with respect and with confidentiality to the extent provided by law.

  • To be informed whether those seeking donations are volunteers, employees of the organization or hired solicitors.
  • To have the opportunity for their names to be deleted from mailing lists that an organization may intend to share.
  • To feel free to ask questions when making a donation and to receive prompt, truthful and forthright answers.
