The Southwest Foundation works with Southwest High School, alumni and our community to create an exceptional experience for all Southwest students. We raise money to support excellence in academics, athletics and the arts. By supporting the work of the Southwest Foundation, you help foster academic achievement, cultivate quality artistic and athletic opportunities and provide scholarships to support the post-secondary pursuits of our graduating seniors. Your gift makes amazing things possible!
Programs like AVID, Project Success, Link Crew, Passport to College, ACT Prep Testing, subsidizing costs of advanced testing (IB & AP) and many student organizations/extra-curricular activities would not exist without the Southwest Foundation. The Southwest administration, student groups, and staff members apply for grants from the Southwest Foundation annually.
Many may believe school referendums have supplanted our needs, but they haven't-- at least not at Southwest (Southwest receives the lowest amount of money per student, from MPS).
Our teachers, students, staff and entire community appreciate your support!
The Southwest Foundation exists:
1.to support the mission of Southwest High School
