Connecting Panther Nation


Washington Local Schools Foundation connects Panther Nation, and beyond, with philanthropic opportunities to provide the resources needed for ALL students to excel inside and outside of the classroom through innovative and extraordinary experiences.

Why a public school foundation?

The Washington Local Schools Foundation was established on January 11, 2021 in response to a comprehensive assessment completed in 2020. This assessment gathered the thoughts and ideas of stakeholders including graduates, former and current employees, business partners, and other foundations on what the successful establishment of a foundation should look like.

The Washington Local Schools Foundation Board identified five pillars where gaps in funding currently exist due to declining revenue. These pillars align with the district’s Strategic Plan.
