The Tower Foundation of Manhasset, Inc. is a non-profit organization established in 1991 by members of the Manhasset community to enrich the educational experience of the students of the Manhasset schools. The Tower Foundation was created in response to a simultaneous decline in state funding to the Manhasset school district and increase in its school age population. Its goal is to raise funds from the private sector, including individuals, families and businesses, and distribute these funds as grants to the Manhasset Public Schools. The Tower Foundation is governed by an independent board of directors selected from the Manhasset community. The board works closely with the Manhasset Board of Education and each school's administration to determine which gifts are given in order to serve the greatest number of students.
Nothing attests to the strength and vitality of a community like its public school system. In Manhasset, we're proud of the excellent education our schools provide, and we aim to keep it that way! Whether or not you have children or grandchildren in school now, we invite you to join us in working to ensure that Manhasset's public schools remain top tier - for the sake of our students and of our community.
