Our Mission

The Foundation's goal is to enhance programs, equipment and services available to Selah students and staff.

In the fall of 2014, a group of parents and leaders met to discuss how we might be able to bring together the resources and talents of our community to benefit students in Selah. The group wanted to look for new ways that we could make the education experience for students truly special and so the Foundation was born in early 2015.
