Olympia Tumwater Foundation

Established in 1950 by members of the Schmidt family and other local citizens, the Foundation has become the largest source of college scholarships for Thurston County high school students. Since its inception, the program has aided more than 380 local students with over $925,000 applied toward their college educations.

In addition to making the Schmidt House and Tumwater Falls Park available to the public, the Foundation also contributes to local projects. The spectacular replica of the Tivoli Fountain on the grounds of the State Capitol is one of the Foundation’s creations outside the boundaries of the Park.
