Accessible funds for academic, extracurricular, and work opportunities

As residents, parents, and children of the Tukwila community, we understand that there are fewer resources, programs, and opportunities available to our youth compared to other communities. To help close the gap, the Tukwila Children’s Foundation has made establishing and awarding academic and extracurricular scholarships one of its primary focuses.

To help kickstart our goal,

we partnered with nine Foster High School alumni from the class of 2012 to sponsor our first academic scholarship, The Bulldog Dream Scholarship, and awarded the funds to two exemplary graduating seniors from the class of 2019. This is our first step towards many more in our effort to further advance the academic, extracurricular, and professional opportunities and accomplishments of the youth in our community.

This scholarships means a lot to me, not just to me, but my family as well. We have always struggled financially and so having the knowledge that my parents won’t have to pay anything provides a big relief to us.
