Welcome To Golden Apple Foundation
We are a volunteer-driven organization that inspires, celebrates and supports educational excellence in our community. Since 1997, the Golden Apple Foundation has grown from honoring teachers in one school district to honoring teachers, principals and volunteers in more than 150 schools, both public and non-public, in Winnebago and Boone counties.
The Foundation operates entirely on the generous financial support of community businesses and individuals, as well as the more than 400 volunteers who donate their time and energy to make our programs successful.
The Golden Apple Foundation continues its mission of educational excellence
in our community through our four core programs.
