The Learning Communities Foundation was established in 2010 to support the work of the Puget Sound Education Service District by enhancing the quality of programs and services provided through Educare. Our Foundation serves children, youth and families in the Greater Seattle area.



The Learning Communities Foundation works with PSESD to determine priorities for funds raised by the Foundation and how investments made will best addresses our mutual goal of eliminating the opportunity gap. 

The Foundation’s principal work is raising funds for the support of PSESD’s programs. Our current flagship program is Educare Seattle.  We are committed to growing a public-private partnership to sustain Educare Seattle’s high–quality standards and its nationally recognized model for early education. We also work to secure contributions and grants for PSESD’s Family Emergency fund and funds to assist the Foundation in meeting general operating expenses.


The Learning Communities Foundation utilizes efforts in fundraising, and are continually looking for grants, corporate partners, and local donors who believe in education.

When you partner with the Learning Communities Foundation, you are enriching the quality of education programs serving preK-12 grade children and helping ensure that every child, regardless of circumstance, has access to quality education programs.  Sustainable funding for early learning and public schools is a must if we are to close the opportunity gap.
