The Highline Schools Foundation was established in 1999 with the purpose of providing community resources to help Highline Public Schools succeed. We believe that by helping to enrich the classroom and school experience, we can engage students to reach a higher level of learning, and the entire community will benefit.
The Foundation is governed by a dedicated group of volunteer Trustees and is the only 501(c)(3) organization supporting all Highline Public Schools. The Foundation strives to be the single point of contact for community members, local and national business, service organizations and other foundations to connect their philanthropic efforts with a single school or the entire district.
Who We Are
We are a group of volunteer citizens who believe in and support the Highline Public Schools: “To create a path to success for every student.” We are committed to gathering resources from our community and beyond, to support this cause.
We help the community and district fulfill their purpose: “That every student in Highline Public Schools is known by name, strength and need, and graduates ready for college, career and citizenship.”
We believe in developing sustainable funding resources to support Highline Public School students into the future.

Programs Showcased at Gold Star Breakfast – 2017: All of the funds raised by Highline Schools Foundation help students and teachers in Highline Public Schools get the resources they need to be successful. The Foundation funds a myriad of needs in Highline—including scholarships, district athletic needs, technology, college and career readiness, early learning initiatives and support for our neediest students and families.
A gift to Highline Schools Foundation is something much bigger than one donation – it signifies that you believe in a future where all students reach their highest potential, where all teachers can provide enriched learning experiences and where all graduates are college or career ready – and that such a future is worth fighting for.
YOUR support makes it possible!
Your donations make a difference in the lives of individual students and your gifts help to provide outstanding academic and athletic programs, scholarships, tools for our teachers, a rich community environment and so much more.
ANY amount you can give helps us immensely,
so please consider making a donation today.
