About The Foundation

The Washington Township Schools Foundation (WTSF) works to connect private funding, community, and alumni with Washington Township Schools to support and enhance the unique educational experiences of our students. Powered by the generosity of our donors, we fund grants and high-impact programs that enrich our curriculum, support professional development, and provide staff with the additional resources needed to fund activities that would not otherwise be available, ensuring a quality public education for the children of Washington Township. 

Since 1985, our Foundation has helped Washington Township Schools advance student achievement by meeting the changing needs of our children. In 1996, the North Central High School Alumni Association was founded to support our vast alumni network. In 2015, we joined forces and came together as The Advancement Center. And today, still united, we return to the name Washington Township Schools Foundation, now with an expanded mission to represent the students, alumni, and community of Washington Township. 

We are proud members of the Indiana Association of Public Education Foundations and the National Schools Foundation Association.

What We Do

For current students and staff of Washington Township Schools, we serve as the strategic funding partner, connecting community investment directly to our classrooms. Public funds alone cannot always cover the ambitious goals we set for our school community, so we aim to enhance public education through private funding. Over the years, we have invested over $8,000,000 in our district schools, and today, we provide more than $500,000 annually in grants, scholarships, and designated gifts.

For past students, including North Central graduates, we serve as your resource for everything from class reunions to homecoming festivities and more. Stay connected with our Alumni community to get the latest alumni news and event updates. Additionally, we help past alumni support the future of Washington Township by connecting your generous donations with the grants and programs that will help shape a better future for our community. Your North Central experience helped make you who you are today. Now, help us build the next generation!
