PUSD Foundation pushes corporate sponsorship in schools
By Emily Sorenson
Searching for new revenue for the district, the Poway Unified School District Foundation on Tuesday presented the school board a few radical ideas involving the possible use of corporate sponsorships.
The foundation has suggested that in addition to modifying current traditional fundraising, schools look to entering into corporate sponsoring partnerships to generate much-needed revenue, such as with Sports Authority and Nike, or Pomerado Health.
“The sky’s the limit for what we are willing to do,” said Fred Pierce of the PUSD Foundation.
No decisions were made at the day long board workshop, although there was much discussion between the foundation and the school board members.
