Nonprofit organization, naming rights policy reflect different approach to paying for PW-S school projects

Tax dollars are being used to pay for $49.4 million in Port Washington-Saukville School District building improvements, but officials hope donations solicited by a new organization will fund needed outdoor facility upgrades not included in last year’s referendum.
    PWSSD Foundation Inc. was recently formed as a nonprofit organization that, while independent of the district, is dedicated to raising money to pay for school projects and programs.
    “The idea of a foundation started with thinking about how to upgrade the outside areas of the district campus,” foundation President Jennifer Clearwater, a Port Washington resident and director of philanthropy for Discovery World in Milwaukee, said.
    “That’s great for now, but we’re thinking big. What about a foundation that one day raises enough money that the district doesn’t have to go back to taxpayers for another referendum?”
