The Foundation funds programs for all 26 schools in the district, enriching the lives of almost 20,000 students.
These programs include academic support and funding for fine arts classes and robotics clubs, to basics like food and backpacks. Our programs help students in building academic foundations, exploring limitless opportunities, and launching successfully into the future.
The Issaquah Schools Foundation’s earliest efforts were in providing grants for teachers. The Foundation believes that innovation is essential and provides funds to explore and implement new ideas in the classroom. Foundation grants transform these ideas into programs and solutions that can ultimately be implemented across the district, multiplying the benefits to students for years to come. Information about the individual programs we fund is provided below.
