The Demopolis City Schools Foundation plays an integral role in enhancing the student’s classroom experience. For the past 30 years, the DCSF has made a difference in our local schools awarding over $1.1 million in classroom grants.

In her first year as director, Margaret Anne Gilchrest was able to help the foundation award over $50,000 in grants to support students and teachers in Demopolis classrooms. Through a competitive grant process, the foundation funds ideas that inspire excellence in its students and teachers each year – bringing much needed resources and programs into Demopolis classrooms.
