Rainier Education Foundation has been working over the last 20 years for the benevolent and educational benefit of the students of the Rainier Community Schools.
Our mission is to:
- Actively seek funds from the private sector and federal and state governments which will be used to strengthen public education in the schools of Rainier.
- Build community support for each school by involving parents and other community members in educational activities.
- Provide special programs and equipment not otherwise available to the students in the Rainier School District.
We meet the second Monday of every month, August-June, in the the REF Portable located at the north end of the middle school. Our meetings are always open to new members, so please join us!
Meetings start at 6:30 p.m. unless posted otherwise. Check our Volunteer page for upcoming meeting dates.
