Who We Are
The Southwest Foundation is a 501c3, a non-profit that directs an important annual fundraising campaign to support: ongoing efforts at Southwest High School; scholarship programs for seniors; and an avenue for alumni to link with their alma mater and other alumni. Thanks to the generosity of parents and other supporters, we have raised more than $1 million in critical funds since 2004 to support excellence in education, including helping to pay for teachers and counselors, new textbooks, classroom furniture, and our fine arts programs. In addition, more than $675,000 has funded 365 scholarships and grants.
Our new website is online, though still under construction at: southwestfoundation.org
