Welcome to the Shaker Schools Foundation.

Established in 1981, the Shaker Schools Foundation was one of the first in the nation to raise funds for a public school system. Since then, we have raised more than $3 million to support the tradition of excellence that sets the Shaker schools apart. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, the Foundation is making a difference in the lives of Shaker students by supporting academics, enrichment, fine arts programming, student travel, and more. We invite you to learn more about our giving initiatives and make a positive contribution with your donation. Thank you for your support!
