Spring Into Foundation Fun

You can help APS students and teachers this spring by playing miniature golf, buying books, enjoying a frozen treat, renting a tux or Giving Grande.

APS partners Hinkle Family Fun Center, U-Swirl Frozen Yogurt, Barnes & Noble and Suits Unlimited are giving a percentage of sales in April to the APS Education Foundation.

In addition, the Foundation is taking part in Give Grande New Mexico, a one-day online giving campaign for nonprofits on May 6 in celebration of the 100th anniversary of community foundations.

The APS Education Foundation supports a variety of initiatives that supplement four major academic programs: Fine Arts, Middle/High School Activities, Literacy and STEM (Science/Technology/Engineering and Math).

Here’s how you can help (and have fun while you’re at it):
