Kent Schools Foundation Hosts Online Fundraiser in Support of Kent Students
COVID will not stop Kent Schools Foundation from supporting students this school year or raising funds to support students in the future.
Kent Schools Foundation (KSF) is a non-profit dedicated to engaging with families, educators, businesses, and the broader community to fund innovative and supportive learning opportunities for every student in the Kent School District.
KSF is taking their third annual fundraiser online for 30 days to raise funds for the Foundation during November. November 1-30 is officially #KSFGiving, and everyone is invited! The KSF Board decided to turn what would have been the annual third auction into an online fundraiser this year, not letting COVID stop the momentum this non-profit has had the last two years supporting students, classrooms, and schools in the Kent School District.
The funds raised during #KSFGiving will support annual classroom grants, KSD Students scholarships, and more. This unprecedented time has severely impacted our most vulnerable populations, many of whom face daily shortages of the most basic human needs. Earlier this year the Kent Schools Foundation awarded $28,000 in community grants to organizations supporting KSD students and families. These critical organizations continue to supply basic needs to our children and families, needs like food, clothing, housing support, and more. Thank you to our partners who continue this work Iraqi Community Center of Washington, Kent Community Foundation, Kent Food Bank, Living Well Kent, Mother Africa, The Storehouse, World Relief Seattle, and Degh Tegh.
“At times, if it may feel as if nothing has gone just as we planned this year, Kent Schools Foundation also sees this as an opportunity to come together and support our students at unprecedented levels,” said Paul Bogel, Kent Schools Foundation President. “With the help of our sponsors, and donors at all levels, we are hopeful that the giving will exceed our previous events and our community will come together to fund innovative and supportive learning opportunities for every student in KSD.”
You can Join Kent Schools Foundation for a live event on Wednesday, November 18, at 12:30 pm to learn more about the foundations impact in KSD.
Donations are being accepted all month long through the Kent Schools Foundation website and through Facebook.

Slip On, Stay Home, and Support Kent!
Slip On, Stay Home, and Support Kent!
These are some upside down times! We are called upon to stay home for the benefit of humanity. Local non-profits are serving more than ever, but are unable to host their traditional fundraisers. That’s where you and I come in. We can share our appreciation by slipping on a pair of spirited slippers, following the “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” order, and supporting our community with a contribution to one of the many amazing organizations who are actively working to support our community during this difficult time. #WeAreKent #StrongerTogether
This community fundraiser is sponsored by Smart Motorz and powered by the Rotary Club of Kent Foundation — a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization (EIN 91-1522960) — but the proceeds benefit the non-profit organizations that you choose! If you have questions about this fundraiser or Kent Rotary, please email us!
