Kitsap Great Give May 2, 2017One Day Only!


The Kitsap Great Give is a 24-hour, online giving event organized by the Kitsap Community Foundation and their Presenting Partner, the United Way of Kitsap County, for the benefit of the greater Kitsap area. Many non-profit organizations in the area will be making the call for the community to donate on May 2nd through the Kitsap Great Give Website linked here:

WSA’s goal for the Kitsap Great Give is a small dedicated amount that is used to directly enhance the experience of our students in the classroom. This year we are focusing on a more fundamental need: our driveway. Due to the prolonged freeze/thaw cycles and heavy rains, our gravel driveway has sustained significant damage. Rather than take away funding from current educational programs to repair the damage, we are asking our community to help fund the repair. $5,500 will allow us to re-grade and re-gravel the driveway. However, $25,000 will allow us to add additional paving, reducing annual maintenance significantly. Our driveway is the first impression made to students as they come to school and to new families learning about the school. It is an important part of our day. We are deeply grateful for your support in repairing our driveway.

Donors can start making online donations at midnight on May 2nd and by clicking here. Online participation is encouraged because WSA could qualify for prizes awarded by the Kitsap Foundation. However, if you prefer to donate directly to West Sound Academy, donations can be sent to West Sound Academy, PO Box 807, Poulsbo, WA 98370 or dropped at the school. Please contact Elizabeth Butler at if you wish to donate another way.

Help meet the match! Three generous donors have already committed to matching the funds donated to WSA for the Kitsap Great Give driveway fundraiser up to $5,000 each. That means for every dollar donated, we will receive $3 more!
