The Canner Funds enhance the quality of the educational experience provided to the students of the Upper Adams School District.


While the mission of the Funds is to support the Upper Adams School District, it operates independently from the school board. A separate committee, consisting of alumni, parents, community members, teachers, and friends, manages the Funds.


Established in 2010, the Canner Funds are a tangible way for alumni, parents, community members, teachers, businesses, and friends to support the students of the Upper Adams School District each year.


The Adams County Community Foundation establishes, invests, and manages permanently-endowed funds for the local community, including the Canner Funds. Earnings will forever support our teachers and students, and all gifts are tax deductible.

The Canner Funds Advisory Board greatly appreciates the many people who give of their time and talents to support the work of the organization. From stuffing envelopes, to setting up and maintaining displays, to assisting with events, the Upper Adams Canner Funds is always in good hands with the help of these volunteers.

Additionally, three committees report to the Canner Funds Advisory Board: Fund Raising, Distribution, and Governing and Nominating. Each committee is led by a member of the Advisory Board and meets periodically.

Since 2010, the Canner Funds have grown in value to over half a million dollars. With additional gifts from donors like you, the Funds will continue to fuel the creativity of teachers and help them serve our students in innovative ways.
