The Foundation Board is comprised of supporters of the Agua Fria Union District schools who serve a three-year term. The Board meets on the second Tuesday of each month (August - May) at 4:30pm at the Agua Fria Union High School District Office, 1481 N. Eliseo Felix Jr. Way, Suite 110, Avondale, AZ 85323. Please check back soon for an exciting new membership plan.
The funds supporting the Foundation's efforts come from two primary sources: fundraising events and donations. In recent years, such events have included golf tournaments, a wine tasting and student art sale. New events are in the works and will focus on alumni and business partnerships. Please visit the DONATION page if you would like to make a future project at one of our four schools a reality.
