Mission Statement

The Lake Washington Schools Foundation gathers and deploys community resources to enhance academic access and to nurture all students’ emotional well-being.


‚ÄčThe Lake Washington Schools Foundation launched in 2005 after a dedicated group of community members joined together, committed to working with Redmond, Kirkland, and Sammamish parents, businesses, and community leaders in support of our future--the students in the Lake Washington School District. The State funds basic education, but our District sets a higher bar for its students and the Foundation supports those higher standards.

Since 2010, the Foundation has raised over $4.0 million funding district-wide programs that prepare each of our district’s students for school and for life. These programs include: Balance in Mind, a program that supports the emotional well-being of students; Find Your Fit, a college-prep program for students and their families; Kids Coming Together, a program that helps students grades 3-8 form lasting connections with peers through social and community service events; LINKS, a mentoring program that matches a caring adult with students who could benefit from additional attention; and Pantry Packs, a program that provides weekend meals for students experiencing food-insecurity

These would not exist without the generosity and support of our community.
