The Foundation stewards a Permanent Endowment Fund in excess of $500,000 and growing through the One Thousand Panther Campaign currently under way. Memorial donations, Scholarship funds, cash and other financial bequests also contribute to this fund. Endowment funds are distributed annually as directed by the donor or estate. In addition the Foundation awards over a dozen scholarships each year to worthy seniors totaling over $15,000.
In addition to funding faculty and staff projects, the Foundation sponsors the Student of the Month Luncheon, a program in which faculty members recommend outstanding students. Foundation representatives honor the selected students at a luncheon. In late spring, the students and their families are recognized again at a formal dinner.
Each year the Foundation hosts a Crab Feed, the always sold out Polenta Dinner, and the Fall Golf Tournament as well as Author’s Nights, Alumni sporting events and other social events.

SRHS’s Project Graduation is an all-night party for the entire Santa Rosa High School Senior Class. It is an amazing, fun, safe and sober way to celebrate on graduation night. Santa Rosa High School campus is transformed into a variety of party themed areas to keep the fun going all night long.
The party begins right after the graduation ceremony and continues until 4am the next morning. This event is made possible by the generous support and involvement from our Santa Rosa High School Parents, Community Organizations and Local Businesses.
Sonoma County Project Graduation was founded in 1987 in response to increasing drug and alcohol use among students on their graduation night – statistically the most dangerous night of the year for young people. Inspired by an alcohol and drug free party thrown by Sonoma Valley High School, the very first Project Grad was organized for five Santa Rosa schools by a group that included CHP officers, MADD members, 4H representatives, and other community leaders. Since then, the efforts have spread from the Santa Rosa district to eighteen schools across Sonoma County.
