The mission of the Yakima Schools Foundation is to enhance educational programs offered within the Yakima School District No. 7 by raising money to fund immediate needs that support current classrooms and programs, and by establishing and maintaining perpetual funding sources, as well as increasing community involvement in the Yakima Public Schools.
YSF has been hard at work supporting our schools. Teachers are foundational to student success. We support teachers by empowering them with the resources they need.
Celebrate Our Youth event was held on April 28th. You can view our virtual program on our event page or YouTube channel: Yakima Schools Foundation.
Happy New Year! After an unprecedented year in education, we are incredibly grateful for the support we received from YSD staff, and our business and community partners in 2020! We are looking forward to 2021 and continuing to provide resources to teachers and students. In the year ahead, we are laser focused on creating equity in education and closing achievement gaps.
We are proud of the many ways we’ve come together to ensure Yakima Public Schools students and teachers were equipped with the necessary tools for success this year, and we look forward to continuing this important work with you in the new year.
During this pandemic and beyond, YSF is living our core beliefs.
