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 composed 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 2022-2023 school year, Principal Rafferty was able to hire educational assistants to support every grade level, and a portion of an essential student support position.

    For the 2023-2024 school year, the Duniway Foundation will ask you to participate in two key fundraising events:

    With budget cuts across the district, Duniway continues to need our generous support. We encourage you to participate in the Duniway Foundation’s Annual Fall Giving Campaign, one of two major fundraisers that raise money for Duniway teaching and support positions not funded by Portland Public Schools.

    The 2024 Auction will be Duniway’s 25th Annual Auction. The Auction is Duniway’s biggest fundraiser of the year; please plan to join us for this incredibly important fundraiser to help enrich the educational lives of our students, and students across Portland Public Schools. Approximately one third (32%) of funds raised will go to The Fund for PPS, which benefits underserved students across the district. Let’s make a difference for our kids! Stay tuned for more details to come. You don’t want to miss this event!

    Thank you in advance for your participation and support of our wonderful school. Please contact any of our Foundation Board members with your questions or suggestions, or visit our website: duniway foundation.org.

    Here’s to a great year ahead!

    Erin Gates

    Duniway Foundation President
