The Amphi Foundation has been working to support students in conjunction with Amphitheater Public School District for 37 years. The Foundation is a nonprofit community organization that provides students with the resources they need to learn and progress in their education. The organization is led by educators, parents and community members who volunteer their time to provide services and raise funds for programs that ensure every Amphitheater student’s academic and fundamental needs are met.

Last year the Amphi Foundation raised a total of $227,967 to contribute to all of the individual schools in the Amphitheater district. Initiatives funded by the Foundation include the implementation of Maker Spaces, Calming Corners and Sensory Pathways, Professional Development Programs and Create Time.  

The programs funded by the Amphi Foundation include:

  • 21st Century Classroom

  • Academic Travel Support

  • Clothing Bank & Resource Center

  • Classroom Mini-Grants

  • Scholarships

  • School Grants

  • Shoes to Smiles

  • Summer Programs

All of the programs funded by the Amphi Foundation follow its mission statement: “To promote academic excellence through the expansion of resources that enrich the education, development, and well-being of the students in the Amphitheater Public School District.”

Recent Amphi Foundation donations include:

  • 36,136 items of clothing donated to over 800 students

  • $42,500 to introduce 21st-century technology into Amphitheater classrooms

  • $28,480 to enrich libraries and literacy programs
