About Us

The Foundation for Tacoma Students is the backbone organization dedicated to building and sustaining GraduateTacoma! – our community-wide collective impact movement - helping every child achieve success from cradle to college and career.

Our shared community goal is by 2020, we will increase by 50 percent both the graduation rate of Tacoma students and those students who complete a college degree or technical certificate. Success will require measuring and closing gaps in access, opportunities, and achievement for all students from cradle to college and career (High School graduation rate 58% in 2010, increase to 87% in 2020; post-secondary completion 28% in 2010, increase to 42% in 2020).

In alignment with Tacoma Public Schools and more than 260 community organizations, the GraduateTacoma! movement has developed a common set of student and community indicators to measure progress toward the goal. The Foundation’s community action networks advance early literacy, expanded learning opportunities and post-secondary enrollment in a data driven environment.
