The Glencoe School Foundation is the sister organization to our school’s PTA. The PTA raises funds to help teachers and students with supplies, activities, events, field trips and other enriching activities. The Foundation raises funds to pay for additional staffing support that is not allowed by PTA rules. The Foundation aims to raise a net of $80,000 over the year through the Grow Glencoe Auction and other direct donations to pay for our reading specialist, increase hours for our valuable school secretary, on-site IT Support, and other much needed school and teaching staff.
Glencoe School Foundation, like all Local School Foundations, fall under the umbrella of The Fund for Portland Public Schools. The Fund focuses on building and accelerating the identification, cultivation, and strengthening of strategic relationships with those who will serve as investment partners in a citywide movement to create a world-class public school system. This organization’s core function is to create, coordinate and facilitate public, private and philanthropic partnerships that foster equitable opportunities and benefits for PPS students.

Like all Local School Foundations, Glencoe School Foundation contributes 1/3 of all funds raised, after the first $10,000, to be redistributed to PPS schools in the form of PPS Parent Fund grants in their equity fund. Glencoe School Foundation recognized that not all schools are in a position to fundraise at the same level, and is happy to support all Portland Public Schools.
