Foundation Programs

The Olathe Public Schools Foundation offers many programs which connect volunteer and financial resources to Olathe schools.

Rewarding Excellence: OPSF recognizes the invaluable asset we have in our teachers. Parents, students, and co-workers nominate teachers for selection as an OPSF Educator Excellence award recipient. Each year, our Prize Patrol surprises 18 outstanding educators with recognition and a $500 unrestricted grant.

Closing the Gap: Through the Student Care Fund and the Student Health Emergency Fund, the OPSF raises funds to supply basic necessities to our most vulnerable students. The Foundation provides thousands of dollars in emergency aid as well as summer school scholarships for families in need.

Sparking Innovation: OPSF funds thousands of dollars in innovative classroom and school-wide grant projects around the district, across all grades.

Launching students toward their future: More than $65,000 in scholarships were awarded to the previous graduating class from funds held at the OPSF.
