DDEF Mission Statement

The David Douglas Educational Foundation is a non-profit community organization founded in 1991, dedicated to promoting student success for all children in the David Douglas School District. The mission of the Foundation is to ensure success for all David Douglas students in a variety of ways:

  • To enhance educational excellence in the District.
  • To encourage community partnerships with the schools.
  • To promote innovative education programs.
  • To assist David Douglas children in need.

The Foundation board and committees are comprised of volunteers. It is important to increase our volunteer ranks with new members, which will support the continuation of this worthwhile non-profit entity.

$5 Campaign

The “$5 Campaign” was started by two David Douglas High School students in 2005. The employees of the District can elect to make a continuing donation to the DDEF through a payroll deduction. The donations that are collected are split with one half being added to our annual grant fund and the other half going to the DDEF “Kids Fund” which is available to the counselor of each school in the District. At David Douglas High School these funds are distributed to the Celtic Heart.

During this past school year, the Kids Fund helped many students with their needs, such as eye exams/glasses, emergency dental work, diabetic supplies, prescriptions/medications, hearing aids and much more.
