About the Alumni Foundation


Our History

Established  in 1990, the WHS Alumni Foundation's first objective was to save the  historic arch from the original main building. After the completion of  that task, the Foundation directed its efforts towards funding  scholarships for today's students and helping support student and campus  activities.


Our Accomplishments

The  Foundation was able to award 27 graduates of the Classes of 2018 and 2019 a total of $17,500 thanks to your generosity! Since its beginning, the Foundation has awarded over $100,000 in college scholarships to graduating  students. Since 2016, the Foundation awarded $2600 in Classroom Grants  to support the WHS staff and their educational efforts on behalf of the  students.


Our Programs

Student Scholarships

The  main goal of the of the Alumni Foundation has been to raise funds to  create scholarships to students at Washington high school. Over the last  15 years the board has been able to fund several scholarships straight  to the student body. We also have private donors that fund named  scholarships. We are very grateful for the current scholarship  offerings: John Woodcock Athletic Leadership, Carrie Nunes Community  Service, Fred Brower - Doug Ely Publications/Journalism Memorial, Steve  Barnett, Mike Jacinto Team Player and Belinda Anne Williams Memorial  Biological Sciences Scholarships. We are continuously looking for more  contributions to the foundation to create more scholarships for the  students. If you're interested in setting up a scholarship, please  e-mail the board directly. Since we are a foundation, all donations are  tax-deductible.

Classroom - Academic Grant Program

Goal:  To assist the instructors of Washington High School in providing  quality instruction and unique learning experiences for their students. 

How could this be achieved?  The Alumni Foundation is looking at things that would not be covered by a district/school budget or where that  budget falls short. It could be paying for a substitute so a class can  go on an educational field trip, art supplies (clay, paint), and science  needs in the lab, etc. We’re sure there are many needs to be  funded, and we are seeking ideas from administrators and instructors.

The  staff application is on the "Classroom Grant" page.  Donations  specifically directed to this program are encouraged and accepted. 

Commemorative Bricks

The  commemorative brick program was started to raise money to save the arch from the original main building at Washington. The bricks are located  around the flagpole in front of the new Main building. Proceeds are now used for student needs and scholarships.
