Happy New Year!

Thank YOU for your support of Basic Student Needs

Thanks to YOU and your generous support, we surpassed our goal and raised over $25,000 for our Basic Student Needs end-of-year campaign.


In every school in the Issaquah School District, there are students in need of support for a multitude of reasons. The Issaquah Schools Foundation's Basic Student Needs programs are here to help. You make these programs possible!  Thank you!
