Foundation Mission & Vision
Our Mission: The Parkrose Educational Foundation was formed for the purpose of raising and distributing funds intended to enhance the educational experience of students in Parkrose Public Schools.
Formed in 1994, the Parkrose Educational Foundation is a non-profit 501 (c) 3 charitable organization, composed of a nine member board of volunteers. Board members are Parkrose community residents or employees, with Board officers elected on an annual basis. The Foundation does not have paid staff, thus allowing the highest percentage of funds received directed to student activities.
In recent years the Foundation has reviewed a wide variety of staff and student body requests ranging from day-use buses for field trips, to playground, band and football equipment. Over the years the Foundation has made contributions to scholarship programs, school libraries and helped acquire special learning tools representing the latest use of technology in the classroom.
The Foundation generates donations through fundraising events, individual donations and payroll deductions. Fund raising events sponsored by the Foundation not only stimulate important contributions for students; they also provide a great time for the contributors! Please consider participating in an upcoming event. The web site will be a central distribution point for information about upcoming activities.
We gratefully acknowledge the generous donations that have provided numerous activities to support our vision for Parkrose students.
