About Us

Mission

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. 


The Yakima Schools Foundation, founded in 1991, is a grass roots community-based organization working to expand and enhance learning opportunities for students throughout the Yakima School District. As a public nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, the foundation exists exclusively by the support of private and corporate donations, payroll deductions, grants and other non-governmental funds.    


The foundation is a completely separate non-profit organization that supports the mission, goals and needs of the Yakima School District. While not a part of the Yakima School District, the Yakima Schools Foundation has the flexibility to seek, accept, invest and channel funds without the restrictions imposed on public school districts.
