Basic Student Needs

In every school in the Issaquah School District, students need support for a multitude of reasons. From food aid to combat hunger in the classroom, to free school supplies for families who can’t afford the expense, to emergency funds when all other options are exhausted, the Issaquah Schools Foundation is here to help. 

Nurses Fund
This special fund allows Issaquah School District nurses to assist students and families struggling to pay for basic necessities, such as utility bills, medical attention and supplies, food, and clothing.

“The funds provided by the Issaquah Schools Foundation assist students in need in our District by supplying them with such basic items as groceries, clothing, medications, eyeglasses, and transportation, thus allowing them to focus on learning.”
Karen Thies, DNP, RN, Health Services Supervisor

Food Support
We provide support for food so  that students may receive breakfast, lunch, or a snack when they find themselves hungry during the school day.  Nutritious meals and learning go hand-in-hand, and students who eat breakfast and lunch are better able to focus on their studies.

School Supplies
Our Tools4School program provides new backpacks filled with school supplies for Issaquah School District K-12 students who need financial support.
