Welcome to Highline Schools Foundation
Each year, the Gold Star Breakfast is a much-anticipated celebration and fundraiser to benefit the Highline Schools Foundation, which is the only nonprofit organization supporting all Highline Public Schools. Since 1999, the Highline Schools Foundation has been supporting innovation and excellence in Highline Public Schools and directly supporting students in our district in areas where state funding cannot.
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 basic needs for students and families. Support through donations and sponsorship play a vital role in the Foundation’s success.
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 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.
YOUR support makes it possible!
