    TOTAL IMPACT in Six Years: $481,000 in School Grants Impacting 108,548 Students

    Up until 2022, the Foundation has focused on providing school grants with the Duck Dive for Education fundraiser, held each spring. With the addition of the Dr. Jim and Peggie Morrow iChallenge for 22-23, the foundation can expand its reach to a new area of need – paraprofessional to teacher scholarships and teacher to counselor scholarships.
