About Us

Good schools are essential both to the well-being of individual students and to the Butler community.

The Golden Tornado Scholastic Foundation, Inc. endeavors not only to enhance the lives of Butler's students, but in doing so, strengthen the Butler community as a whole, now and in the future.

We are an independent nonprofit organization that promotes excellence in the Butler Area School District by providing funding through a number of programs.

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, the Foundation functions as a separate entity from the Butler Area School District.
