Spear-It of Influence
The Marion School Foundation supports the MISD community by offering classroom grants that span all schools, grades, subjects, and learning needs. In 2016, nearly $30,000 was awarded.
Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to the Marion School Foundation this year!
The Foundation is only able to support a limited amount of worthwhile projects each year put forth by some amazing teachers. We need your help to fund projects and bring even more quality learning opportunities to students.

Three of last year’s Marion Fund grant recipients are pictured above.
Left: Classroom wobble chairs at Francis Marion Intermediate School allow and encourage movement for students who think better with mild activity. Students are attentive, actively learning and “wiggling” while they work.
Center: Marion High School purchased a table top CNC machine for use by robotics teams and engineering classes. The equipment allows students to actually produce the designs they develop and has been a good learning experience for the students as well as the teacher!
Right: A new AP Chemistry class being offered at Marion High School was able to purchase analytical balances and burets with their Marion Fund grant. Marion students are fortunate to have access to a well-stocked laboratory and the procedures they are learning will benefit them as they continue on in post-secondary education.
