Ensign Fund

Welcome, Seabees!

The Ensign Fund is a 501C3 that encourages academic excellence for every child at Ensign through a wide range of additional programs that focus on:

  • Student engagement and staff connection: National Junior Honor Society, AVID, arts, science, extra-curricular clubs, intramural sports, staff development, teacher grants, student intervention support and enrichment

Pledge Drive Donation
Annual Campaign

In order to continue the success of the Ensign Fund, we need your help! Gifts of any amount are greatly appreciated. 

Donors of $350 or higher will be invited to our Annual Donor Reception Party (usually in March).

To make your tax-deductible donation, you may:

1. Use the Pledge Drive Donation - donate above and select Annual Campaign

2. Download and print the Donor Form (left of screen) and mail in check or drop to the front office

Wish Night

Wish Night is an opportunity for you to help teachers by giving them funds to pay for an “above and beyond” experience in their classroom. We kick it off at Back to School night with teachers displayed QR codes and a “wish list” of items that they would like to enhance their classroom for their students.

If you missed the opportunity then you are able to still do so online through the end of October.  Wish Night donations can be made through the Pledge drive donate button above.  Select “wish night” and be sure to add under the +plus sign donor recognition/wish night/notes to add teachers' name or department.  There is another opportunity to donate to Wish Night at Mix + Mingle. 

Mix + Mingle

It’s a great opportunity to meet more parents, teachers, staff, win great items and have fun...all while supporting Ensign!  

Mix & Mingle (October 2023 - coming soon!)


2022-2023 Fund-A-Need "Zen Den" was a huge success!  Thanks to all who participated and helped make it a great success!
