As you consider your end-of-year charitable giving, please consider Highline Schools Foundation.
The Highline Schools Foundation was founded in 1999 by a group of parents and community members with the foresight to ensure that the quality education that their children were receiving would be sustained.
The Highline Schools Foundation is the only nonprofit organization serving all students in Highline Public Schools. We strive to bridge the gap between what the State of Washington provides our District and what our public schools need to provide our students with a well-rounded quality education.
Our mission is to raise funds, gather resources, and build partnerships that support all students in Highline Public School.
We fund many areas of need including:
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.
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.

Do 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? Well, we want to talk to you!
For 14 years, Highline Schools Foundation has awarded grants directly to pre-K through 12th grade educators (including teachers, counselors, librarians, and other staff) throughout all Highline Public Schools to support innovative teaching and learning.
We received a record number of Excel Grant applications this year. Now the Grant Review Committee (comprised of Foundation Trustees) has the challenging task of selecting the projects that will be funded this year - never an easy task since all of the requests are worthwhile! Expect announcements after the Thanksgiving break!
A big initiative the Foundation supports is Graduate! Highline. Graduate! Highline was initiated by a group of community and civic leaders, district alumni and passionate supporters of Highline students. The vision is to build a grassroots movement fueled by participation from every corner of the community: individual citizens, local businesses, community-based organizations, faith communities, and corporate business partners.
Our graduation rates are climbing but not nearly fast enough. It is the goal of this movement to create urgency to increase our graduation rates, and to convey a commitment to our students and belief in what they can accomplish.
Highline Schools Foundation makes an impact on every student in our district, every day, by providing the resources they need to excel. We support Highline Public Schools' promise, that "every student is known by name, strength and need, and graduates ready for college, career and citizenship."
