Black Knight Funds

Mission

To enhance the educational experience of students in the Windsor Central School District Community.

About the Black Knights Funds

Created in 2009, the Black Knight Fund and Black Knight Legacy Fund allow donors to make a lasting impact on the Windsor Central School educational experience.

Special projects, scholarships, and teacher mini-grants will be funded with donations to the Black Knight Fund from various sources including community members, alumni, and staff.

The Black Knight Legacy Fund is an endowed fund; ensuring that the donations will continue to grow and meet the needs of our school community well into the future.

The Black Knight Scholarship Fund, created in 2014 from the Windsor/Kirkwood Dollars For Scholars Program, is dedicated to providing as many scholarships as possible to graduating seniors of Windsor Central High School, and to to help with their pursuit of college or trade-school education. Our annual phone-a-thon takes place in March. We welcome new volunteers interested in helping Windsor students achieve their dream of college. Please contact Susan Behn if you can help at sbehn@windsor-csd.org. 

Funded in spring 2015 by the Black Knight Fund, this is footage from Windsor Physics Club’s first balloon launch to near space. They launched from Windsor Central High School’s football field and recovered the space vessel in a small pond in Masonville New York.
