Now celebrating our 40th year, the Shaker Schools Foundation has long been a pioneer in public education philanthropy. Since then, we have raised more than $7.5 million to support the tradition of excellence that sets the Shaker schools apart.
Through the robust support of individual donors, community partners, and grants from local and national foundations, we are able to make a difference in the lives of all Shaker students at every grade level throughout the District.
