Innovative Education Funding

Innovative Education Funding
The Education Foundation mobilizes community resources to fund innovative academic STEM, art, music & wellness programs that go beyond our normal school funding at the 36 schools within the Bend-La Pine School District and bridges the gap to the business community for education. Our priority focus is on schools with Title 1 status or have a high percentage of students on Free & Reduced Meals.
