As a business organization, the Twin Falls Area Chamber of Commerce advocates activities, events and projects to enhance our community’s economic vitality and quality of life. Investment in the educational infrastructure of our community’s schools is critical to the continued prosperity of the Twin Falls area.
Quality education is a key factor for businesses and individuals who are considering locating in our region. It’s typically one of the first questions we’re asked about the community. The Chamber is proud to partner with the Twin Falls School District Education Foundation to support quality education for today’s residents and tomorrow’s workforce.
Every donation to the Foundation – large or small – helps to supplement the work of the Twin Falls School District to advance academics, technology, and important student activities. Together, we can enhance and improve the quality of education within the Twin Falls School District.

Dear Friends of the Twin Falls School District Foundation,
The Twin Fall Education Foundation provides a tremendous service to the schools located within the Twin Falls School District. Over the years, the Foundation has provided hundreds of thousands of dollars to enhance the educational experience of students throughout the district. Our “Partners In Education” continue to strengthen our educational system to make Twin Falls the vibrant community it is today.
Whether it is providing mini grants to teachers, or taking on large projects such as the campaign to place a projector in every classroom, the Foundation’s impact on the learning environment within our schools is unmistakable. The donations to the Foundation continue to support and enhance the programs within the schools giving every child access to a world class education.
The highlight of the year for our staff is the Red Apple Gala held annually in April. At this event, a Teacher of the Year is selected from the teachers receiving recognition from the Foundation as Teachers of the Month. This event is a celebration of all the work completed during the year and is a chance to recognize the many people supporting the foundation.
Please consider becoming involved by making a contribution to the Twin Falls Education Foundation. Your gift will make a difference in the lives of children right here in Twin Falls. As a member of the school community, I am humbled by the generosity of the people living in Twin Falls. Together we will continue to ensure that the Twin Falls School District #411 remains the best school district in the State of Idaho.
Dr. Brady D. Dickinson
