Are You In? Go All In For Kids Today!

The Issaquah Schools Foundation is a not-for-profit organization that has been serving the Issaquah School District for 32 years.  The Foundation exists to ensure every student at every school has the highest quality educational experience possible.  But the Foundation can't do this without you!

Because of generous donations from families in the district, during the 2017-2018 school year, the Issaquah Schools Foundation distributed $1,378,761 to 69 unique programs, including:

  • 19,800 students received one-to-one help from teachers at after-school homework labs
  • More than 17,000 free breakfasts, snacks and lunches were provided to students
  • More than 550 volunteer art docents received training and lesson plans, giving them tools to teach innovative art classes in elementary schools
  • $37,500 in funding gave 461 students at 10 schools an opportunity to learn in robotics clubs
  • Families that need financial support received nearly 1,000 free backpacks filled with school supplies
  • More than 335 families received one-to-one support in eight languages to help them navigate the school system
  • The Foundation also awarded 12 classroom grants and 9 Kateri Brow grants for innovation in education to individual schools.

Go All In For Kids today and help the Foundation continue to create excellence in education in our school.  Go to today to donate!
