  • Lake Washington Schools Foundation

    The biggest fundraiser of the year for LWSF, the Spring Luncheon, has been cancelled. It has shifted it to an online fundraiser. It is by far the biggest fundraiser of the year and brings in the majority of the funds that they use for annual overhead operations.

    In addition to this concern, they are already seeing negative impact on all of their programs. These consist with cancellations, postponements of events and increased costs of services.

    Pantry Packs weekend food program for over 900 food insecure students has seen disruption in the food supply system, triggering us to look to different suppliers and higher food costs. If schools close, we also anticipate needing a larger volunteer pool to help distribute the food packs.

    LINKS mentorship program has been cancelled for the time being. No mentors are currently being allowed in the schools.

    Balance in Mind program that supports Youth Mental Wellness has had to cancel a variety of events that promote education and awareness of mental health issues.

    Find your Fit, a series of free workshops that advise students and parents on various aspects of the college application process have switched to webinar. Providing this online access has been an additional cost to the organization.

    Our Kids Coming Together program has had all events cancelled, with no current alternatives.
