Founded originally in 1993 and activated in 2004, the Pioneer Educational Foundation was conceived to support the educational endeavors of the graduating seniors of Wisdom High School in the towns of St. Agatha, Frenchville, and Sinclair. It is a non-profit organization made up of an all volunteer committee. It is of primary importance to this organization that our students continue their education beyond High School.
HOW WE ARE SUPPORTED
The Foundation is supported with annual membership dues and memorial donations and contributions from alumni families, teachers and friends.
WHERE WE GO FROM HERE
The Foundation's Goal is to raise money with the intent of distributing one half of its annual income in the form of scholarships to our graduating seniors. The remaining one half will be put aside for a capital fund to ensure future distribution of funds.
With your support in the form of a tax deductible contribution, we can continue to award college scholarships to those students who meet our criteria based on scholastic ability and service to the school and community.
You can participate as well. Volunteering to serve on the board keeps you in touch with an important part of your past and provides the opportunity for you to give something back to the Wisdom Middle/High School Community.
