Attend the Breakfast of Champions

We hope you consider joining us at the Breakfast of Champions in April 2024.

Join Our Board of Directors

Established in 1981, the Mercer Island Schools Foundation exists to bolster the success of Mercer Island Public Schools. Overseen by a volunteer Board of Trustees, meeting nine times a year, the Foundation ensures responsible governance and financial management. These trustees actively advocate for the Foundation’s mission in the community and secure the necessary resources to fulfill our educational goals.

Become a Student Ambassador

The Mercer Island Schools Foundation’s Student Ambassadors will represent the student voice on the Foundation Board, help raise awareness among high school peers about the Foundation’s work and participate in MISF events. It’s a great way to get involved and develop your leadership skills. Applications for 2024-25 school year open in May of 2024.
