Centralia Community Foundation believes that quality education and career training are the fastest way to a healthy and vibrant Centralia.

There are great benefits that flow from investing in education. Our goal is to fundraise for our education, early learning, and career pathways initiatives. As a community foundation, we are an independent and  trusted steward of our donor’s dollars. Our board is made up of leaders in the community who understand the value of supporting education. They ensure that our investments are made wisely and that the metrics are achieved. We know that quality education is crucial for business and job opportunity growth in our community.

If you want to join our effort and support the way forward in our community, please reach out to any of our board members you may know, or email to: info@centraliacf.org

We support the Centralia schools levy vote on Aug 4th

Centralia Community Foundation began supporting the Centralia School District in early 2018 and the progress we have seen is very positive.

But it’s more than just progress for our kids; there are also great benefits that flow from investing in education. We know that quality education is crucial for job opportunity growth and community renewal.

We support the Centralia schools levy because:

  • It supports activities that get kids interacting and socially involved in school; field trips for grade school classes, high school after school clubs such as gaming and esports, theatre group, knowledge bowl, and dozens of introductory and competitive sports.
  • Without the local levy support there will be little or no budget for advancing and updating Centralia schools in-classroom computers and technology. Learning digital life skills is essential for most future career paths and not having these updates puts our kids behind.
  • A failed levy vote cuts teachers, reduces student schedule options, and means we will lose some of our advanced classes at Centralia middle and high school that challenge our most studious kids. A successful levy will help us continue advanced classes and add accredited College in the Classroom classes at no cost to student families and keep our high achievers in our own schools.
  • Our new District Superintendent, Dr. Lisa Grant, has already made significant changes in creating a community accessible school district. She is currently setting up the Citizen’s Advisory Committee and Budget Task Force, giving us confidence in the transparency and community collaboration she has pledged to lead.

We hope you will join us and VOTE YES for Centralia Schools.
