Celebrating 34 Years of Service to Bend, La Pine & Sunriver Schools

The Education Foundation is celebrating 30 years of service to the K-12 educational community in academic year 2018-2019! A public celebration was held in September at the Box Factory hosted by Avid Cider Co. and sponsored by Les Schwab Tire Center & Hayden Homes.  Community members enjoyed music by Groovasaur and special performance by MOsley WOtta.

10 Barrel Brewing Westside recognized the Education Foundation as it’s monthly Charity on Tap in September and Poke Row restaurant in NW Crossing  donated a portion of proceeds in September.


A special private event for former and current board members was held at the Deschutes Brewery Mountain Room.

With gratitude, we honor our founding board members.  Without their vision and tireless work, our support of students, educators and schools would not be possible these past 30 years!
