The generous gifts and event proceeds we have received over the past few years have enabled the Yakima Schools Foundation to fund many programs, materials, and classroom supplies that promote learning. We fund leadership opportunities, music training, the arts, sports, field trips and participation in activities not covered by taxpayer funds
Many of the grants we fund are done so in a financial partnership with other funding sources including additional grants, community funding, and PTA or ASB (student) fundraisers. Many of our grants are awarded by combining payroll deduction funds from district employees along with yearly interest earnings from our endowments.
Thanks to you, our generous, committed community, we have been able to provide opportunities for today’s students to learn, grow and join the ranks of so many who are now in a position to give back and support the next generation. We never take for granted the importance of this circle of life in the importance of building and supporting a healthy, thriving, learning community.
