About the Foundation

Founded in 2004, the Foundation has funded more than $500,000 in supplies, technology, tools and continuing educational opportunities used to enhance classroom instruction and the entire Broughton experience.  In addition, the Foundation has awarded teachers over $50,000 in recognition of excellence in instruction.

Initiatives supported by the Foundation range in focus from academics to arts to athletics to beautification to teacher retention and beyond. Below are a few of the grants funded:

    • Technology equipment
      • iPads
      • Document cameras
      • Graphic software
      • Teleprompters and a camera helicopter for television production

However, diminishing public funds for education make supporting projects like these more challenging than ever.  Please join the Capital Foundation in its efforts to preserve Broughton’s tradition of excellence in offering new and enhanced educational programs, and in attracting, recognizing and retaining top teaching talent.

Contributions of all amounts that invest in this current generation of students through the Capital Foundation are welcome and we hope you will participate at some level.
