Direct Giving

Update: Thanks to your support, we beat our 2021 Direct Giving goal! We raised over $69,000!

Each fall, we invite families to participate in our Direct Giving Campaign, one of FOSB’s largest fundraisers of the year. Instead of asking you and yours to buy cookie dough, wrapping paper, or popcorn, we ask you to contribute directly if you are able — any amount will do! Our goal is to raise $65,000 by December 17, 2021.

How to donate
  • Online:
    • Please note: This donation website is used for both Direct Giving and the auction. If you visit the site and see auction content, our Direct Giving Campaign has ended for the year.
  • By mail: Print our donation form, write a check payable to FOSB, and mail your donation to the school.
  • Ask your friends and family to help: Send the donation link to others you think would be willing to support our school.
  • Ask your employer to help: Many employers match employees’ charitable donations, which can double, triple, or even quadruple your contribution! Contact our bookkeeper, Jerri Harden, if you need help with your employer match.

Donations to Friends of Salmon Bay are tax-deductible. FOSB’s tax ID is 91-1622350. 

Where your donation goes

FOSB works with Salmon Bay School to close the gap between the programming that is funded by Seattle Public Schools and the support our students need. The Direct Giving Campaign helps FOSB pay for elementary counseling, elementary reading support, middle school math support, FOSB committees, extra planning time for teachers, teacher grants, art and music programs, yearbooks and much more.
