SOUTH GLENDALE — The Glendale Educational Foundation launched its third year of fundraising for Glendale schools on Thursday at a “State of the Schools” breakfast event that drew about 400 educators, business people and residents.
The foundation has brought in about $250,000 for schools in its first two years of fundraising, said John Sadd, president of the organization. This year the organization would like to gather $150,000, Sadd said.
“Since our inception, the community has been very receptive,” Sadd said.
Each year, the foundation chooses one of three areas to focus on. The first year it funded performing arts programs, the second year money went to science and technology activities, and this year the foundation will turn its attention to health and fitness.
