Where Do Foundation Funds Come From?

The dollars raised to fund Education Foundation grants come from a variety of sources:

•Do you shop on Amazon. com? 
When you shop at smile.amazon.com, Amazon donates to your favorite charitable organization. Choose the Verona Area Education Foundation as a portion of your purchase price will help the foundation carry out its mission of offering extra financial support to unique and innovative classroom projects for teachers!
