Our Schools

Education Foundation


Our mission is to encourage and support excellence in Richland School District Two by enhancing educational opportunities for students, fostering community involvement, and providing resources that promote success in the district.

The Education Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization established in August 2000. The foundation's objective is to raise funds and promote educational programs for the district by soliciting and accepting donations from business groups, individual corporations, foundations and individuals-at-large. A community board, whose members serve one to three year terms, governs the foundation.

Our Values

  • Strengthening our community through high quality public education.
