The Friends of Chimacum Schools Education Foundation (FOCS) was founded in 1994 by a group of local citizens exclusively for charitable and educational purposes. It was established as a non-profit organization with 501(c) (3) status in 1996. The Chimacum Schools Education Foundation funds are intended to enhance, not replace state and local taxes for schools.

FOCS was created to:

- Help students continue their education by promoting and awarding scholarships
It is the purpose of FOCS to promote education at all levels within the Chimacum School District by providing the long term management structure necessary for a permanent fund and a scholarship endowment fund from which only the income will be available for distribution to support educational projects and student scholarships.
