AAHS Class of 1970 Endowment Fund

In spring 2022, several members of the Altoona Area High School Class of 1970, in part to commemorate their belated 50th reunion, partnered with the Altoona Area School District (AASD) Foundation to launch the “AAHS Class of 1970 Endowment Fund.” 

The new endowment fund, currently with contributions/pledges of more than $7,000 and an overall goal of $25,000, was created as “a gift in perpetuity” to benefit the high school.  The Class of 1970 is the first class to utilize a named endowment, which will literally “pay dividends” to the school for many years to come. We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity and contribute (either one-time or ongoing) to make this project a success.

Under the AASD Foundation, our tax-deductible contributions, will be pooled and invested until the $25,000 goal is reached sometime in the next few years.  A small committee of class donors along with the foundation will be established to monitor and help guide the fund and determine how proceeds might best aid the high school.

The endowment fund will be discussed briefly at the AAHS Class of 1970 reunion on Saturday, July 30, 2022, in Altoona.  Questions can always be directed to our website ( or to Paula Foreman at the AASD Foundation by email ( or phone (814)-946-8424
