Mat-Su Schools Foundation
         Building a foundation for education...


The Matanuska Susitna Schools Foundation supports excellence in the Matanuska Susitna School District by providing supplemental funding for education. Children are our future. Therefore, investments in improving educational opportunities for kids are investments in our community and society as a whole.

The Matanuska-Susitna Schools Foundation is a nonprofit, tax-exempt corporation organized to support the educational needs of our school district. Contributions are exempt from Federal income tax under section 501(c)(3) and deductible under section 170 of the Code. We are an official Pick.Click.Give. organization.

Mat-Su Imagination Library
The MSSF is a supporter of the Mat-Su Imagination Library. The Imagination Library, a program started by Dolly Parton in 1996, sends a new, age-appropriate, high-quality book in the mail each month to children under the age of 5 at no cost to their families. Participating in Imagination Library increases family reading time and has been shown to help children begin kindergarten prepared.

This program is more than books; it’s meaningful parent/child interaction, brain-building moments, and getting ready for kindergarten! Family events and parent newsletters about early learning boost the impact of the program.

While Imagination is free to families, it takes local funding to make sure books make it into the homes of our children. It also takes the donation of time to make sure children are enrolled at community events.
