Hartland Lakeside Education Foundation & PTO

The Hartland Lakeside Education Foundation works to support education and enrichment programs in the Hartland-Lakeside School District. The Foundation exists to provide financial support to the Hartland-Lakeside School District through fundraising activities as well as acting as a public relations liaison between the district and the community. The goal is to provide supplementary means to meet and exceed the educational goals through fundraising and donations from parents, alumni, and the community at large. The Foundation collaborates with the district and funds PTO activities and events at each school within the district. The Foundation is a non-profit organization accepting tax-deductible donations and company matching gifts to maintain excellence in the Hartland-Lakeside schools within the Hartland, Wisconsin community.


The Foundation was formed by parents and community members in 2005. Joining with our PTOs in 2010, we have increased the ability to reach out to our parents and community. Our efforts have resulted in funding such things as handicap accessible playground equipment, classroom SMARTBoards, and projectors, heart monitors for CREW, wireless microphones for the theater department, heart defibrillators, special education buddy program, cultural dance units for history classes, projection and sound system for the presentation room, as well as many other student projects and learning opportunities.

How can you help?
Everyone can easily help raise funds for the schools by turning in your Piggly Wiggly receipts, participating in the Alternate Fundraiser option, Employer Matching Donation Programs, or donating on e-funds any time of the year!

The Hartland Lakeside Education Foundation recently received an employee match from the BMO Financial Group.  Thank you!  More and more companies are offering corporate matching gift programs.  Through these programs, businesses match an employee’s donation to eligible nonprofit organizations and double, or sometimes even triple, the impact!   If you believe the company you work for has a corporate matching gift program, please consider asking them to match your donation.
