Innovative Education Funding
30 Years of Service to the K-12 educational community in Bend, La Pine and Sunriver! The Education Foundation mobilizes community resources to fund innovative academic STEM, art, music & wellness programs that go beyond our normal school funding at the 32 schools within the Bend-La Pine School District and bridges the gap to the business community for education. We provide funding for needs-based Activity Fee Scholarships for middle & high school students to participate in after-school athletics. Our Perseverance Awards program recognizes students who overcome life challenges to make it to graduation and pursue educational or career training pursuits. In 2018 we partnered with the C.O. Latino Partnership to provide scholarships to Latino high school seniors.
The 2018 classroom grant application cycle closed April 13, 2018 and will reopen in spring 2019. This year, the Foundation awarded over $89,000 for STEM, art, music and wellness classroom grants! For more information, please contact us. 2018 Classroom Grant Application
