About the Foundation

The Olathe Public Schools Foundation, founded in 1997, is a non-profit, volunteer-based organization providing grants, scholarships and recognitions for the teachers and students of the Olathe School District. The Foundation brings students, parents, alumni, small businesses and corporations together to create opportunities to support continued excellence in Olathe schools. The Foundation works to build supportive relationships between our schools and the business community through many cooperative events and programs. Since 1997, the Foundation has provided over $7 million in support to Olathe school staff and students. The Foundation has assets in excess of $3.4 million and has an annual operating budget of $1.5 million.   

The Foundation is managed by a staff of four professionals and a board of directors consisting of 24 community volunteers. They work with corporate sponsors and individual donors who wish to establish or contribute to programs through ongoing sponsorships, annual pledges, one-time gifts, lifetime gifts, or legacy gifts.
