The Local School Foundations
Thank YOu to ALL of OUR PPS PARENTS for Supporting Your Schools!
For over 25 years, Portland parents and community members have rallied in support of their local schools. It is this 25 year history that Portland Public Schools’ new fundraising arm, The Fund for Portland Public Schools, is honored to steward.
On July 1, 2019, the Local School Foundations (LSFs) have unified under The Fund for PPS umbrella, making it possible a whole new magnitude of philanthropic investments to Portland Public Schools.
In 2018, PPS Local School Foundations raised well over $4.6 million. Two thirds of the funds are allocated towards staffing at the schools that raise the funds. One third of these funds, after the first $10,000 raised by the Local School Foundation, is redistributed to PPS schools in the form of PPS Parent Fund grants.
