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.

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.
