FRIENDS OF JENNINGS SCHOOL DISTRICT FOUNDATION

Jennings has established a 501(c)(3) to allow community members to donate funds to help Jennings continue to improve.  One of the many goals of the foundation is to support students with funds to go to college given most of our students face economic struggles. Our goal is to have 100% of our students accepted into a post-secondary program. If you would like to send a donation, you can make a tax-deductible pledge by writing a check of any amount to:

Friends of Jennings School District

2559 Dorwood Drive  

Jennings, MO 63136


If you want your funds earmarked for college only, please indicate college in the memo. Information on the students who receive scholarships and on the foundation's work will be sent to you. 
The Friends of Jennings Foundation is the only foundation directly associated with the Jennings School District.
