Come join us! We’re looking to add members to our South Whidbey Schools Foundation Board.
If you would like to help support our local public schools, we invite you to learn more about us. We usually meet once a month on a Saturday morning at the South Whidbey Community Center. (During the pandemic we are meeting via Zoom online).
Board members serve three-year terms and help plan and produce two to three community outreach events a year. We laugh a lot, love being positively productive, and take satisfaction in rolling up our sleeves and getting a task done. Best of all, we make a difference in the lives of students in the South Whidbey School District. Contact Shelly Ackerman, our Board President at SWSF@whidbey.com for more information.
Consider leaving a legacy gift to the South Whidbey Schools Foundation that will benefit students in our community for years to come. Check out our new Legacy Giving page by clicking here.
