Employee Donation Challenge

Laird Norton Company employees support Lakeridge Elementary School Library!

Thank you Jeff Vincent and the team at Laird Norton for your continued support of Lakeridge Elementary School. Every year, Jeff challenges the employees to donate to a fund that specifically supports Lakeridge Elementary, with the incentive of seeing him dress up as Buddy the Elf once a certain level is reached. This year’s donations were used to support Lakeridge’s library and literary efforts! If you or your company have a specific school or program you would like to support, please let us know. 

"Laird Norton’s continued support to grow our library is amazing! Our students have already created lists that include 2 things they think our library is lacking (and they’re right!): books that include protagonists of color and graphic novels. In addition, the library could also use an influx of current non-fiction texts and books in multiple languages that parents can use at home."

Teacher Grants
Ignite Innovation

Our Teacher Grants Program supports innovation in the classroom. Thanks to the generous donations of supporters like you, since 2016 Renton Schools Foundation has provided 100 Teacher and Support Staff with direct grants totaling more than $69,000 for use in the classrooms to support student learning!

This fall we are focusing on raising funds for Teacher Grants. Your donations between now and  September 30, 2021 will go right back into the classroom, Igniting Innovation through Teacher Grants.


Through the support of sponsors like you, we are able to make an impactful difference for the 15,500+ students in the Renton School District.

With your sponsorship, Renton Schools Foundation provides additional funds for STEM programs, Literacy, Music & Arts and Teacher Classroom Grants. These opportunities provide our students that extra boost, keeping them engaged and dreaming of their own futures.

In response to impact of the COVID pandemic, we have expanded our funds support to include student internet connectivity during the 2020-21 school year, helping fund student mental health services and provide principals’ access to urgent need funds at our highest at-risk elementary schools. Your Sponsorship makes all this possible.
