You dream it. We fund it.
The WSF provides grants to teachers for projects that fall outside of normal funding. We give 20 Mini-Grants (up to $250) throughout the school year and 4 Creative Classroom Grants (up to $1,000) in the Spring and Fall.
99% of Washougal Schools Foundation spending is directed to our grants.
Our nonprofit organization is dedicated to enhancing the quality of public education improving the lives of Washougal’s children. To make that possible, we keep our overhead expenses low so that your donations can go directly to the most effective programs.
