Ensure funding for today and tomorrow: Become a 545 Family

The hallmark fundraising program for the Friends of Laurelhurst Foundation is the 545 Campaign. By becoming a 545 Family, you agree to give the Foundation $500 each year for 5 years.

Your donation enables the Foundation to fund Laurelhurst Elementary School initiatives that need financial support today and ensures the health of the endowment for tomorrow.

Support for today

With generous contributions from our community and diligent investment management, the Foundation’s asset have grown to over $1 million and enabled more than $150,000 of giving back to the school in the form of computers, playground renovations, electronic white boards, and books. Our children are already benefiting from the donations of past 545 Families.

Security for tomorrow

Since its inception in 1998, the Foundation has grown to more than $1 million in value. In the face of school funding uncertainties and ever increasing demands for limited school resources, it is increasingly crucial for our community to ensure the continued growth and stability of the Friends of Laurelhurst Foundation. Your support helps to ensure a better tomorrow for our kids and our community.

Our thank you: Exclusive 545 Winery Social

In appreciation of your commitment, each year the Foundation hosts a celebratory event exclusively for 545 Families. This year, as a 545 Family, you will enjoy a catered evening of wine tasting and savory bites at JM Cellars in Woodinville. A complimentary charter bus will meet you at the school and bring you to and from the winery. The Winery Social is a festive event that 545 Families look forward to year after year.
