Duniway Foundation

  • Welcome to Duniway!

    Whether you are a new or returning family, we know you will have
    a fantastic educational experience at our school.

    The Duniway Foundation is comprised solely of parent volunteers, who work throughout the
    year to raise much-needed dollars that allow our school to fund classroom teaching and
    assistant positions not funded by Portland Public Schools. With the funds raised in the 2019-
    2020 school year Principal Goldstein was able to hire the equivalent of 6 teaching assistant positions and contributed to Duniway’s STEAM enrichment
    program, the scientist-in-residence program.


    For the 2020-2021 school year, the Duniway Foundation will ask you to participate in two
    key fundraising events:

    ● The Fall Giving Campaign:https://duniwayfoundation.org/2020-annual-campaign

    As we know this year is like no other. But one thing remains the same -- Duniway still needs
    our support. We invite you to participate in the Duniway Foundation’s Annual Campaign, one
    of two major fundraisers that raise money for Duniway teaching positions not covered by
    Portland Public Schools and for additional educational programs.

    ● The Spring Duniway Auction: Friday, March 5, 2020 --
    www.duniwayelementary.com/auction

    The 2021 Duniway Auction will be our 22nd Annual Auction and our First Ever Virtual Auction!
    This year the theme is Camp Duniway and you will get to set up "camp" in the comfort of your own home! The Auction is Duniway's biggest fundraiser of the year-- and the kids need you now more than ever!

    In addition to our fun and interactive Virtual Auction featuring auctioneer Amanda Valley (7 pm,
    March 5, 2021!), there will be an online auction and tons of exciting items up for bid! Extended
    family, friends, and community members are welcome to join the fun virtual!
    Please plan to join us for this incredibly important fundraiser to help keep class sizes small and
    help enrich the lives of our students-- and all students across PPS. Thirty percent of funds
    raised will go to the Portland Fund, which benefits underserved students throughout Portland
    Public Schools. Let's make a difference for our kids and all kids in Portland! Stay tuned for more
    details to come. You don't want to miss it!
    Thank you for your participation and support of our wonderful school. Please contact us,
    or any of our Foundation Board members, with your questions or suggestions.
