Celebrating over 30 years
The West Muskingum Academic Fund was created in 1982 by a group of concerned parents, educators, friends and other community members.
The Academic Fund was established and continues to operate as a separate, nonprofit foundation with its principal monies forever remaining on deposit. The interest earned from that principal is spent each year to partially or fully fund enriching academic opportunities for the students of the West Muskingum School District.
For over 30 years, the West Muskingum Academic Fund has helped thousands of students attend academic competitions (such as Future Business Leaders, National Science League and Math Counts), participate in enrichment activities (such as Dawes Arboretum, Columbus Zoo, Ohio Theatre and the Ohio Statehouse), and host traveling presentations and productions (such as Future Business Leaders of American State Competitions, Columbus Children’s Theater, and COSI-on-Wheels).
To date, the Academic Fund has provided over $325,000 in financial support and has touched the educational lives of 130,000 West M students. We appreciate the wonderful support from our alumni and our community of parents, teachers, and friends of West Muskingum Schools.
