Why School’s Out Washington?

Children at Boistfort Elementary enjoyed learning about Washington State.

Children at Boistfort Elementary in Lewis County received our support last year!

Your donation through The Seattle Foundation on May 15 will help support our Feed Your Brain Project and give a rural community the resources they need to provide summer literacy programming and free meals to kids.  So many kids across our state experience “summer slide” without access to summer programming that keeps them learning and on track to enter school in the fall.  In addition, only 10% of eligible kids receive free meals during the summer months through federally-subsidized meal programs. Feed Your Brain helps solve these issues in rural communities by supporting summer programs for kids that focus on literacy and provide free, nutritious meals. Every dollar you donate will go toward supporting kids in rural communities!

Join thousands of folks across our region in an exciting day of giving sponsored by The Seattle Foundation.  This May 15th, GiveBig for rural kids in our state.
