About Us

The Foundation for Vancouver Public Schools is an independent, 501(c)3 educational non-profit corporation established in 1988 to support Vancouver Public Schools (VPS). Our mission is getting kids to school healthy, happy and ready to learn!

As an educational non-profit entity, we are able to offer financial assistance and programs for students that cannot be funded by the school district. Unlike parent groups such as PTAs and booster clubs which raise money for individual school projects, the Foundation serves all 37 district schools including those in our high-needs communities.

Areas of support:
Basic Needs
Health Services
Early Learning

The Foundation is generously supported by donations from school employees, parents, students, community members and business.
