Teacher Grants

Founded in 1987, the Issaquah Schools Foundation, in partnership with the Issaquah School District, drives resources to help students reach the promise of their potential. Our programs create limitless opportunities for every student in every school by addressing basic needs, filling gaps not funded by state or federal dollars, and championing innovative programs.
