Mission & Values

We engage the community in raising funds that support public education and enhance academic achievement in the Port Townsend School District.

We were founded 10 years ago in response to the financial challenges the district and teachers  of the Port Townsend School District faced when seeking to provide enrichment in the classroom. This home grown, locally championed, organization continues it focused mandate to provide support one grant at a time. Oh and they have fun while their at it!
