The Robinson High School Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.

RHS Foundation History
The Robinson High School Foundation (RHSF) was established in 2010 to provide volunteer and financial support to our school community. Through the generosity of community partners, alumni, parents, faculty and administrators, the Foundation has raised more than $340,000 to help improve the school community.

RHS Foundation funding has provided or assisted with projects such as:

  • Two electronic marquees and protective covers
  • Award-winning college and career center, The Cube
  • A vibrant faculty/staff grant program
  • Upgraded classroom technology
  • Auditorium audivisual upgrades
  • Campus irrigation and landscaping
  • Naviance college application and scholarship software
  • Hudl athletic filming software and other support for athletic teams
  • Journalism program equipment
  • Gymnasium PA system
  • Assistance for student clubs, band, orchestra and JROTC
  • Operating budget assistance for the RHS PTSA
  • Athletic facility improvements
  • Audiovisual equipment

Why does RHS need a foundation?
A foundation sets goals and raises funds for improvements that may not be in the school district budget. Teacher/staff grants allow RHS faculty members to pursue classroom improvements, equipment needs, teaching aids and training that may not otherwise be available to them—ultimately benefitting the students. Without assistance from the RHS Foundation, many of these needs may go unmet or come out of the pockets of the teachers.

How can you help?
Support the RHS Foundation by becoming a Community or Family Partner. Attend the Foundation’s annual fundraising event. Volunteer to support the Foundation’s activities. Get involved and help a school that is rising to a higher level of excellence as the best high school in the county.
