for Kelso Public Schools Teachers/Staff



Our mission:

* Fund and Award SCHOLARSHIPS for deserving graduating seniors

$120,275 awarded to 43 KHS 2020 graduates


* Fund and Award GRANTS for innovative K-12 educational activities that benefit a substantial segment of students for which public resources are insufficient.


Since 1997 over $210,000 has been awarded to fund KPSF Grants

within Kelso Public Schools in the following areas:


32% Literacy

20.5% Career/Technical Education

13% Music

11% Teachers

10.5% Health & Physical Education

The demand for GRANTS has grown, we need to increase our financial resources.  

Classrooms and instruction will look different in the 2020-21 school year, together we can assist teachers and advisors to have the greatest impact on student learning!  Help us support Kelso Public Schools staff during this difficult time by funding innovative activities/projects for our students.
