Rails Endowment for Academic, Art and Athletic Development (REA3D) is Proctor’s Area Educational Foundation.
REA3D was established in 1996 to support lifelong learning within Proctor School District communities. Specifically, it seeks to enable life-enriching academic, art and athletic activities which cannot rely on traditional educational funding. It reaches these goals by holding fundraising activities and dispersing funds through awarding bi-annual grants.
REA3D’s major fundraising activities include the annual ISD 704 Staff Drive, bi-annual mailings, online giving options, and special events such as the Fall Tasting Event and the Winter REA3D by Candlelight Dinner. All direct contributions to REA3D are tax-deductible and can be made by visiting the Donate page. REA3D also offers a Leave A Legacy Initiative, which helps those considering to arrange for a REA3D gift within their estate planning.
The REA3D Board of Directors considers grant applications for up to $1,000 and awards grants twice annually, in October and January. You can learn more about the REA3D grant application process by visiting the Grants page, and clicking on the Grant Application option.
