About Us

The Panther Ram Foundation supports programs to directly benefit our students in the Central Dauphin Schools. With the cost of public education today and almost 11,000 students we need to use the Foundation to provide funding for essential educational needs. This can be from the extracurricular activities, enhanced learning activities or providing food for our children to have healthy nutrition over a weekend.

The Panther Ram Foundation supports programs such as East High Band uniforms, Smartboards in classrooms, NutriPacks Program, Learning Grants for Teachers, (6) $1000 scholarships for seniors at CD East, CD and Dauphin County Technical School given annually, George “Speed” Ebersole Field Scoreboard, Raku Pottery supplies and summer workshop for middle school students and Green Power Club support. These are just a few ways we can provide for our students to have the BEST public school experience. We had it, now we want better for our kids.

We envision many new areas for financial needs, including but not limited to extra-curricular activities, technical advances in the classroom, scholarships, and much more!

Please help us by giving today or giving regularly!

History

History

The Panther Ram Foundation was formed in 2001 to complement students’ academic experiences in the Central Dauphin School District with programs that will foster greater learning and understanding that might not be sustainable due to lack of funding. We are governed by a board of directors comprised of parents, business professionals, community representatives, and school district officials.

Also, the Panther Ram Foundation is an approved Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) organization, please visit EITC Info for the guidelines or the EITC Website.
