Donating to Students in Need

Thank you for your interest in supporting Olympia School District students and families! Your generous donation will help our students be more successful at school, improve graduation rates, and help struggling families meet some basic needs.


What are Some of the Ways You Can Help?

Individuals, businesses, and organizations support our needy students in a variety of ways, including:

 

  • School Supplies
  • Backpacks
  • Shoes, clothing, etc.
  • Holiday supports
  • Food
  • Health Room Supplies
  • Toiletries

Who do I Contact to Make a Donation?

You should first decide if you would like to donate to an elementary, middle, or high school. It is recommended you then contact the principal or counselor at one of the schools serving your residence or business location/address. The school principal or counselor can help make sure that your donation supports children and families in need at your chosen neighborhood school.
