• he Beach School Foundation was established in order to generate resources to restore and maintain high-quality education for the students at Beach School. Since the Beach PTA cannot use its funds to supplement staffing needs, it is critical that we have a resource that can keep, restore and maintain our teachers and staff in tight budgetary times.

    One-third of all funds raised (after the first $10,000) by Local School Foundations is set aside in the PPSF Equity Fund that is stewarded and distributed to high-need schools by the Portland Public Schools Foundation using a data-driven formula that is examined each year to ensure the funds are reaching the highest need schools.

    Foundation funds raised last year contributed to an Educational Assistant position for the Kindergarten classes and made it possible to apply our equity grant funds towards Playworks for the 2015-16 school year.
