Board and Committee Members

Join the SouthWest Metro Educational Foundation and help us make a difference in the lives of students in our community.

We exist for the sole purpose of sustaining and advancing the unique and vital educational services and programs of SouthWest Metro Intermediate District 288. The SouthWest Metro Educational Foundation supports District 288, where people register for opportunity and hope, not just to receive an education. SouthWest Metro supported over 4,000 individuals this past year to overcome barriers and achieve a quality life through education.

We give out scholarships to students pursuing higher education and grants to support the programs and classrooms in our district as well as provide recognition and ambassadorship for the amazing programs of District 288.

Come help us make a  difference in the lives of students in our community!
