The United Way of Walla Walla and College Place Public Schools have partnered to develop the Adopt-a-Student Program, a scholarship foundation to help eliminate financial barriers for all students who lack financial means to fully participate in school-sponsored programs, activities, or academic experiences. The Adopt-a-Student Program is now part of the United Way’s Annual Fundraising Campaign.
Requests to access the resources may be submitted by teachers, counselors, coaches, club advisors, and students. All funding requests will be reviewed and approved by the Adopt-a-Student Scholarship Committee.

Each year employees donate to the Adopt-a-Student campaign through payroll deduction and direct donations. These funds give our CPPS students a chance to prepare for college, learn new skills, stay engaged, participate in sports or extra curricular activities without the worry of how their family will pay for it.
CPPS runs the annual United Way Giving Campaign November 1-November 30 of each year. However, employees can give at anytime during the year to Adopt-a-Student Program.
