ABOUT THE FOUNDATION...The Redwood High School Foundation (RHSF) was created in 2004. It combines the Annual Support Fund, Benchwarmers, Scholarship, Sequoians and now the Redwood Alumni Association. This year the Foundation’s goal is $900,000 which will be allocated to Redwood's Academic, Art, Athletic, and Scholarship Programs. It is now funding larger projects such as a new drama studio, Wellness Center, and a bathroom/snack bar complex on the football field. The Foundation also supports all Alumni Events such as the Avenue of Giants Banquet, the Athletic Hall of Fame and the Alumni Website.
