When people list the benefits of living on Mercer Island, public schools are always near the top. Our schools have educated our sons and daughters and launched them into success in college and beyond. Many have returned as parents of new generations of students. But whether here on Mercer Island or scattered throughout the world, they form a Mercer Island family, products of, and committed to, exceptional public education.
Annually fundraising campaigns provide for the Foundation to meet its mission by securing private funding for outstanding educational opportunities and special projects that are not funded – or are funded only in part – by the District budget. Your tax-deductible gift ensures that the Foundation will fulfill its commitment to a partnership with District administrators, teachers, parents and community on behalf of educational excellence for every Mercer Island student.
