Drive 4 UR School
One of the major fundraisers for the Edwardsburg Public Schools Foundation is the "Drive 4 UR School" event. On a Saturday in the fall, the school community supports the foundation by driving vehicles from the local Ford Company. For every valid test drive taken in a car or truck, Ford donates $20 to EPSF. The goal is to raise the maximum donation of $6,000 at every "Drive 4 UR School" event. Participants have a great time driving new vehicles on a course around the schools throughout the village. The foundation has garnered thousands of dollars through this event for scholarships for graduating seniors and educational grants to enrich classroom experiences of students at all grade levels.

The Edwardsburg PublicSchool Foundation partners with the Edwardsburg Fire Auxiliary to organize the "RunEddie Run" 5K Race each summer. Participants from around the area run a course throughout the village of Edwardsburg. Additionally, special events are planned for children, during the race. Sponsors provide support through donations of goods, services or resources. The proceeds from this event support students via scholarships for graduating seniors, and educational grants for staff to fund special projects and field trips that enrich the classroom experiences of students.
