For 20 years, the annual Ready to Learn Fair has served thousands of Anacortes students, Kindergarten to 12th grade. It is a labor of love for hundreds of volunteers, and comes together thanks to the incredible generosity of our entire community. In 2019, the one-day event served over 300 students, and once again put critical resources in the hands of our families who need assistance most. 

The 2020 Ready to Learn Fair will be held at a new location: Anacortes High School from 9am to noon on August 15. The Anacortes Schools Foundation is proud to partner with the Anacortes School District in support of this important event.

Each kid receives a new backpack full of supplies tailored to their specific year in school, Treva King, Chair of the event, said.

Kids get to look through donated new or gently used clothing to take home with them. Each year volunteers collect clothing for the event. 

Financial donations are accepted...

Our need continues to grow, and each year, the fair serves more and more students. That is why we are once again asking for support. We need to raise over $15,000 and hope that you will once again make a generous gift. 

Donations should be made out to the Anacortes Schools Foundation, 2200 M Ave., Anacortes, WA 98221. It is important the donation be notated for the Ready to Learn Fair.  As in the past, your donation may be tax deductible. The Anacortes Schools Foundation’s Federal Tax I.D. number is 91-1263495. 

If you would like more information, Marta McClintock, ASF’s Executive Director would be happy to talk with you. If you have questions, please feel free to call her at 208-310-0973 or email, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
