Welcome to the White Salmon Valley Education Foundation’s website! We are very excited to be able to continually grow our organization and be a part of a strong school system. We live in a community that supports and values a well-rounded education. With government budgets shrinking, we are pleased to be able to bring supplemental funding to every school in our district.
The Foundation was founded in April 2006 out of the belief that we could call on the support and funds of the community to help our schools enhance the curriculum offered by targeting funds to pay for high-quality educational materials, experiences and professional development.
Our granting process is guided by an evaluation matrix that encourages programs that emphasize project-based learning, and the use of technology as an instructional tool. It also encourages projects that engage students at all levels and learning styles in meaningful problem solving and team work, and encourages the integration of community volunteers/mentors who can bring real life connections to learning experiences.
We are succeeding and with your help, we will continue to make a difference!
