Anacortes Schools Foundation collects donations for projects other than our scholarships. Here are several opportunities to make a tax-deductible donation to help our school kids. ASF assigns your full donation to the project you designate. We do not collect any administrative funds.
Our schools are looking for donations to help purchase items that haven’t been funded in the tightened school district budget. The projects that still need funding range from display cases to field trips to community service projects designed by students.
Library Card for Teachers The ASF is seeking donations to fund library cards for our district teachers who live outside the boundaries of any city library district. These cards cost $60 each for a 9-month library card, which entitles the bearer to full benefits available at the Anacortes Public Library. Some other school districts fund such benefits for their teachers; Anacortes School District has had to seek funding for this effort from other sources.
Please send your tax-deductible donation to the Anacortes Schools Foundation at 2200 M Ave., Anacortes, WA, 98221, or click here to pay on line. Thanks for helping our teachers help our kids!

Anacortes High School teachers have requested funds to purchase display cases for student physics and drafting projects, a trip to see a Seattle Repertory production of “Crime and Punishment,” and paper and ink to produce and display student photos of local senior citizens.
Fidalgo Elementary School requests include musical instruments, after-school study club trained and paid staff, and materials to make fleece blankets for the opening of the Anacortes Homeless Shelter.
Island View Elementary School is hoping to receive funding for compound microscopes, drums and keyboards for music team-building and community performance, and book libraries to serve two classrooms.

The cost of these projects ranges from less than $200 up to $1000. Some contributors are joining with friends to honor a friend or an occasion.
