The Foundation invests in your child’s success at Dickerson by:

  • funding the morning monitor which gives all students the option of 8:00 a.m. arrival to attend intramurals, clubs, and study/help sessions   

  • purchasing classroom laptop computers

  • providing water bottle filling stations and satellite clocks in the school hallways

  • funding building improvements like the outdoor classroom and shade so the students can enjoy more outdoor time

  • investing in MI Write and Membean subscriptions  


The Foundation allows Dickerson families and the community to invest directly into their students’ education.  


The donations are tax deductible, and 100% of the funds raised go directly into key strategic investments for immediate impact.
