Sponsor Levels


The Education Foundation of Yuma County is a 501(c)3 organization that depends upon charitable contributions in order to exist. The Foundation sponsors mini grants for classroom teachers, the annual Teacher of the Year Nomination Kick-Off Dinner, and the annual Teacher of the Year Banquet. 

This year's Banquet will be a virtual event accessible on the Education Foundation's FaceBook page and You Tube channel
