Thank you for keeping our Mission in Motion!
The Shaker Schools Foundation provides resources to enrich the educational experiences of students of the
Shaker Heights City Schools. The Shaker Schools Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
Established in 1981, the Shaker Schools Foundation was one of the first in the nation to raise funds for a public school system. Since then, we have raised more than $6.5 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.
