In May, 2011, the Heritage Clock Tower & Carillon was gifted to the Webb City R-VII School District. At the base of the tower are red bricks that can be purchased for $100.00 each to honor any current and/or former teacher and staff member. These proceeds are also used for funding scholarships for graduating students.
The Foundation is pleased to announce a partnership with Webb City CARES (Community and Resources Embracing Schools). The program is an initiative, which focuses on creating strong community relations between schools, the business community, the faith based-community, parents, and social services to provide fundamental needs, ensuring students to be successful learners.

Donations to the Foundation are not limited to scholarships and Webb City CARES. In the past, funding has been donated to assist students attending leadership conferences and other educational events.
