The Mercer Island Schools Foundation
Through community involvement and investment, the Mercer Island Schools Foundation raises and invests funds to provide exceptional learning experiences for every Mercer Island student and builds a bright future for our community and its young people.
The Mercer Island Schools Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) public service, non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing and improving the quality of education provided to ALL students of the Mercer Island School District by obtaining contributions for the public schools.
In 1981, parents and community leaders had a dream – a vision of enriched opportunities for students and teachers through a privately funded organization. Due to the diligent efforts of these volunteers, the Mercer Island Schools Foundation was formed. The Foundation has become the catalyst for the Mercer Island community to guarantee every teacher has access to the most up-to-date, innovative educational materials that guarantee exceptional teaching and learning experiences for every student. Donations to the Mercer Island Schools Foundation have continued to grow. Families and businesses throughout the Mercer Island community have invested more than $23M creating an ongoing legacy of excellence in education. The tremendous success of the organization lies in the simple fact that the Mercer Island Schools Foundation was born in a community that places value on quality education.
