The Principal Charity Classic

The Community Foundation is the host charity of The Principal Charity Classic, which has raised over $7.7 million for children's charities. The Community Foundation uses funds received from The Principal Charity Classic to support Connecting Kids and Culture. More than 309,500 students have benefited from the program, which provides 65 percent of all funding available for in-class and field experiences for schools in Polk, Dallas and Warren counties.
