Welcome to Junction City, Our Community
Started in 1987, the Education Together Foundation pursued a vigorous campaign to increase the 70-year-old Junction City School District’s tax base to a level of funding that would be closer to actual expenditures. Following this successful effort, the core people involved felt that the positive community spirit that resulted could be permanent if channeled into other projects supporting education.
Since its inception, the Education Together Foundation has funded education at all stages from kindergarten to adult continuing education. The foundation has funded amounts as small as the cost of a $34 GED certificate to individual scholarships of more than $3,000.
Junction City is unique among small towns in having a non-profit foundation to provide financial assistance for continuing education.
