In 1986, then- Clovis Unified Superintendent Dr. Floyd B. “Doc” Buchanan had the vision of a foundation for public schools that would help ensure kids always had the resources needed to excel. The foundation would fill the funding gaps when state and federal dollars weren’t available.
A volunteer Board of Directors was recruited and this group took on the challenge of mobilizing community support and soliciting the first donors to the Foundation. Since its inception, the Foundation has raised over $6 million to support much needed educational programs and scholarships at every school in the District.
