Google Expeditions

The Spencer Community School Foundation Annual Giving Program is in progress! Thank you to Northwest Bank for providing the initial gift of $5,000 to fund 30 Google Expeditions technology devices for virtual field trips for elementary students. Google Expeditions devices allow students to take “trips” with 360-degree panoramas and 3D images around the world to museums, outer space, underwater, and other intriguing places.  Thanks also to TechKnow for recently matching the Northwest Bank gift.  The goal is to provide as many classroom sets as possible through additional donations.

This year, the hope of the Foundation is to raise money through your generous giving for the following projects:

  • Additional Google Expeditions Technology classroom sets for elementary students for virtual field trips

  • Educational Enhancement Projects

  • Speakers

  • Field Trips

  • Hands-on Experiences

  • Scholarships

Please join the Foundation in building strong futures for students enrolled in Spencer Community Schools. The Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization funded by donations, bequests, and the annual giving program, functions separately from the school with no funds received from the State of Iowa or the Spencer Community School budget.

Please consider donating to provide these educationally enriching and enhancing projects for students in the coming year. To make a donation, or for more information, contact the Foundation at Spencer Community School Foundation, Box 200, Spencer, IA 51301, or email us at
