Every fall, during the Mercer Island Schools Foundation All in for Kids campaign, our community comes together to provide funds to ensure our schools maintain the highest academic standards. The Foundation is committed to providing every Mercer Island School District student with world-class, best-practice curricula and enrichment.

We strive to bring exceptional opportunities to the classroom that ignite learning, improve educational outcomes, and prepare all students to be lifelong learners. Foundation support through community donations is critical in delivering the rich education needed in our classrooms.


The All in for Kids Phone-A-Thon continues to be the largest fundraiser each fall for the Foundation. The Foundation board, parents, community leaders, teachers, and administrators come together to call every family in the District.

The Phone-A-Thon funding request supports priority K-12 academic programs in core academics and enrichment. These resources are needed in the fall so that the materials will be available to students and teachers for use in the classroom throughout the year.

  • World-Class Curricula
  • Academic Enrichment Opportunities
  • Teacher Innovation Grants
  • Professional Development for Teachers
  • Music, Visual, and Performing Arts
  • Social / Emotional Support Programs

2022-23 Fall Priority Funding Request

Every fall, the Mercer Island School District proposes a list of critical needs to the Foundation.

The Board of Trustees and staff work closely with the District to understand these needs and how they will impact students and teachers. The Board of Trustees then votes to approve this final Fall Priority Funding List.
