The Foundation for Springfield Public Schools conducts a yearly fundraiser to help improve Springfield schools. This year, the Foundation has increased its fundraising goal to two hundred thousand dollars. KSMU's Joe Morgan explores to progress of the fundraiser.

Last year, the Foundation for Springfield Public Schools fundraising goal was one hundred fifty thousand dollars. This year, it raised its goal to two hundred thousand. Project and Development Director for the Foundation for Springfield Public Schools Linda Regan says that the Foundation is positive that it will meet its goal.

Regan says that the Foundation has a smaller goal to reach before the start of the school year.

Regan says that any amount of money will help Springfield Public Schools improve programs and facilities.

Regan says that this fundraiser is a great way to help out the local schools. She says it's even more important because one hundred percent of the money raised stays in the schools.

Regan says the money raised will be used in two ways. The first is two dollars per student will be given to every Springfield Public School for school improvements. The second way is teachers write grants for projects they feel will help the schools. The Foundation has a Board of Governors that makes the decisions on which grant proposals get funded.
