Redwood High School Foundation (RHSF) was created in 2004 as a nonprofit, tax exempt, 501(c)(3) organization. It combined the Support Fund, Benchwarmers, Scholarship, and Sequoians. The current organization was designed to simplify solicitations to families and the community. It also created an umbrella fund raising effort capable of supporting additional programs and grant requests at Redwood High School.

The Foundation Board is comprised of parent, community volunteers, the Executive Committee and the Principal. These members are responsible for fund-raising, bylaws, and financial accounting. Principal David Sondheim provides the Board with an overview of the Administration and District budgets.

Overview

Self-reported by organization

WHY WE NEED YOU: Yes, It takes everyone of us. You may recall that your local K-8 school has only one foundation. At Redwood, there are many clubs and teams which parents can donate. The Redwood funding process is comparable to a university: teachers students and coaches make grant requests when they have an unmet program need. A team of parent volunteers, faculty, students and administrators help evaluate each request and then allocate funds. We are asking all parents to help with the funding. Helping Redwood helps us all.
