Established in 1998, The Wildcat Foundation has awarded grants to the Mechanicsburg Area School District since 2001. To date, we have invested nearly $700,000 in grant support. In addition, the Foundation has provided capital support for the Trails and Trees Environmental Center and the turf field at John Fredrickson Field, Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Park. We also provide scholarship funding with investments made by the Mechanicsburg Club, and financial support through sponsorships, ads and underwriting for school and community groups alike.
This year, the Foundation received 49 grant request. A volunteer review board evaluated and recommended funding, in full or in part, for 37 programs and projects.
