- Educational Assistance and Hardship Relief for Students
The Foundation for Rushford-Peterson Schools maintains an Angel Fund to help financially disadvantaged students fund needs related to their education such as field trips, drivers ed, technology. It’s an anonymous program with only school administrators knowing who is helped. Students pay it back by volunteering at school or in the community.

An endowment fund was established in 2017. The goal is to grow the fund until it can sustain the annual scholarship awards. Donate to the endowment fund to put your donations to work for generations to come.
School Enhancement Fund
