We appreciate you taking the time to provide your feedback on the creation of a new volunteer-led Wakefield Schools Foundation that will support Wakefield Elementary School, Wakefield Middle School and Wakefield High School. 

Strong community schools help build strong communities in a variety of ways. Here in Raleigh, and throughout the U.S., communities leverage school foundations to strengthen their community schools by funding specific positions and programs. From literacy specialists and Spanish teachers to art programs and teaching assistants, school foundations enable communities to have a stronger voice in the types of opportunities offered at their community schools by raising funds for critical needs beyond what can be funded by reduced school budgets and PTSA support.

Funding for a school foundation typically comes from school families and alumni, community members, local property owners, local businesses, and others who care about the quality of neighborhood schools. Whether or not you have children who are current students at Wakefield Schools, you are a critical voice in helping determine whether there is enough interest in our community to create and sustain a school foundation.

This survey should take about 5 minutes to complete.
