Ways to Support Our Schools & Students
Make an Investment in the Future of our Children
Thanks to YOUR support, the Education Foundation programs are making a positive impact on the children attending our local schools. Since 1988, Foundation donors like you have enabled us to provide over $1.6 million dollars to support local children and educational initiatives. Please continue investing in the future of students and the future of our community. By clicking here you will be directed to our secure site where you can make a tax-deductible gift in support of our mission. Or, you can learn more about other options by visiting our informational pages about Legacy Gifts, Event Sponsorship’s, and Volunteer Opportunities. In-kind gifts of products or services are also greatly appreciated.
An unrestricted donation is a general contribution in support of the Foundation. Unrestricted monies support programs and operations. Donations can be made in any name or anonymously.
A restricted donation is designated to support a specific Foundation program, limited to a particular school, demographic group, or cause. The restricted donation form will allow you to specify how you would like your contribution to be used. Donations can be made in any name or anonymously.
Recurring donations can be made on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis. If you select this option, your credit card will be billed automatically for the period and donation amount chosen.
Many companies encourage their employees to be philanthropic. Some even match education related gifts or hold an annual United Way fundraising campaign (where you can request your gift be restricted to the Education Foundation for Bend-La Pine Schools). Please contact your employer for details.

*The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and our tax ID number is: 93-1064935. All contributors will receive confirmation of donations for tax preparation purposes and are subject to the Foundation’s administrative fee schedule. A nominal administrative fee is a common practice among healthy nonprofits and allows the Foundation to pay for administrative and staff expenses required to process and allocate donations to maximize the benefit to the children and public schools. Without administrative fees, we could not survive, function, or grow into a successful philanthropic organization. Thank you for your support!
