The Delton Kellogg Education Fund was founded in 2014 to support the educational activities of the students and teachers of the Delton Kellogg Area School District.

In June of 2014, several members of the Delton community began to meet to discuss the opportunity to create an Educational Foundation for the students of Delton Kellogg Schools. Enthusiasm grew quickly, and on August 19th, the Delton Kellogg Education Foundation (DKEF) was formed and established a Board of Directors. Several structures of the Foundation were explored, and it was decided on September 9th to enter into an affiliation agreement with the Barry Community Foundation (BCF).
DKEF board members: Marsha Bassett, Connie High, Julie Osgood, and Laurie Tamez.
“This exciting development has been nurtured, and carefully considered,” said Marsha Bassett, Chairperson of DKEF. “This affiliation will allow DKEF to immediately engage our efforts to have an impact on our students this school year. We will be able to address area community educational needs and involve local community members and leaders who have a passion for our hometown, some of them being alumni or educators within the system themselves. To create such an organization has been a dream of mine for years. I am thrilled to see it unfold and finally become a reality for the Delton Kellogg School community. The support of this community never ceases to amaze me!” added Bassett.
Our thanks to Barry County Telephone Company/MEI who matched every dollar donated to DKEF up to $15,000. Funds collected were used to provide 19 – $1,000 scholarships to Delton Kellogg graduating seniors as well as fund classroom grants for the district.
We invite you to join us in supporting our Delton Kellogg School District.
– For Good. For Delton Kellogg. For Ever.
