With the generous support of local businesses, educational professionals, and individual donors we provide funding assistance for key programs and enrichment opportunities that would otherwise go unfunded.

The Kyrene foundation is governed by an all-volunteer board of directors who donate their time and talents to deliver on the Foundation mission and initiatives. The board members have a wide range of backgrounds, and many are Kyrene alumni or current Kyrene parents. Learn more about our current board members below.
