for all OSD students

U.S. Martial Arts


The U.S. Martial Arts Center builds the minds, bodies and values of kids and young adults through the practice of Taekwando at several studios in Olympia. USMAC has also helps tremendously in building the success of kids throughout the Olympia School District by being the single largest donor to OSDEF over each of the last two years.



Verizon is a global leader delivering innovative communications and technology solutions that improve the way their customers live, work and play. Verizon provided the initial investment in the Principal’s Emergency Checkbook fund in 2007 and has been contributing each year since. In 2015, Verizon donated a generous $5,000 and was our featured breakfast sponsor! These contributions have helped many children in Olympia with basic needs so they can come to school ready to learn.

Nisqually Indian Tribe


The Nisqually Indian Tribe contributes in many remarkable ways to enhance and develop our community for the betterment of all. Over the last four years, the Nisqually Nation has been a very generous contributor to OSDEF’s teaching grants program which fosters classroom innovation, character-building and closing the achievement gap for all kids.



Having been in our community since it was chartered in 1957, the Washington State Employees Credit Union is a committed partner of the OSDEF. WSECU has been a major sponsor of OSDEF’s fundraising musical the past three years…with proceeds resourcing the Teaching Grants program dedicated toward the goal of achieving a 100% rate of graduation from high school through programs such as tutoring and homework clubs. This year, WSECU also gave a large contribution to our middle school math tutoring initiative, which has data showing that early math intervention for sixth graders is showing marked increased math success for high school and beyond.
