SBL Schools Foundation
BACKGROUND: In 2008, the SBL Schools Foundation was established in partnership with the Siouxland Community Foundation.
MISSION: The SBL Schools Foundation will generate resources to help assist in the development of world-class learners and to help the students of Sergeant Bluff-Luton Schools to become responsible citizens.
PURPOSE: The purpose of the Foundation is to provide funding that supports its mission and to ensure that Sergeant Bluff-Luton Community Schools remain a leader in the State of Iowa by providing the students with a unique learning experience. This experience can be obtained by utilizing the latest technology, building a curriculum path for every student, and creating enhanced educational opportunities. The Foundation will also provide an avenue for the community, staff, and alumni to preserve and enhance the district. This support will take the form of scholarships, grants, memorials, and endowment contributions.
