FOSB’s Direct Giving campaign has launched!

The Direct Giving campaign is FOSB’s fall fundraising event. Instead of selling cookie dough, wrapping paper, or popcorn, we ask you to contribute directly to our work to support Salmon Bay School. 

Our goal is to raise $75,000 by December 16, 2022 with 100% of families participating.

Here’s our progress to date:

Goal: Raise $75,000

Goal: 100% of families participating

FOSB helps close the gap between the programming that is funded by Seattle Public Schools and the support our students need. With rising costs and the much-anticipated return of many of our signature programs and events during this school year, we need your help more than ever. The funds we raise will be used this year.

Please contribute if you can — any amount is welcome!

We’re happy to make available the FOSB budget for the 2021-22 school year. The budget was developed over the last several months by our Finance Committee and community members. It includes funding for a lot of the programming we’ve supported in years past. Please review the budget and send any questions you have to ( We’ll vote on accepting the budget at the May meeting.
