YES Fund applications are reviewed by a committee of Foundation staff and community members and funds will be distributed monthly to Adams 12 Five Star Schools. This fund is used to support Adams 12 students and staff and all purchased items belong to the school or department, not to an individual. Principals and Directors must approve applications before submitting to Foundation.

We are constantly inspired by the students and staff members who persisted and persevered through a turbulent few years. To show our commitment and support, we are creating the opportunities that will help flourish our innovative thinkers, dedicated teachers, and super-star students.

YES Fund, from the Five Star Education Foundation, supports Adams 12 Five Star students and staff with a little more YES throughout the year.

The YES Fund is accepting inspiring applications for learning readiness and career readiness program opportunities.

Application Examples:

  • $175 to match staff donations to send students to state competitions

  • $100 for a newcomer class to explore an American store and practice purchasing

  • $1,000 for low-income students for college credit courses like AP Chemistry


A short list of rules:

  • Requests must be student-focused

  • We cannot fund capital projects or improvements

  • We give priority to curricular vs. extra-curricular requests

  • Request for purchasing items must be a one-time expense or used within an academic year. Unused funds must be returned to the Foundation.
