• The ACCESS Academy Foundation bridges the gap in public school funding and provides much-needed staffing that helps to improve our students’ educational outcomes. Additional staff– teachers, specialists, and educational assistants – can only be funded through the school foundation.

    The Foundation is run by parent volunteers and is an affiliate of the Fund for PPS (the Portland Public Schools Foundation). One-third of funds raised above $10,000 go to the PPS Equity Fund to help schools that are less able to raise funds close the achievement gap.

2023-2024 GOALS

  • This year we have to more than double our fundraising efforts to maintain staffing levels (full-time second counselor and a full-time Spanish teacher) and raise even more if we want to hit our goal of bringing our beloved librarian on full time.

    Therefore, we have set our 2023 – 2024 fundraising goal at an astounding $270,000! Reaching this goal would mean we could contribute $176K to ACCESS and $84K to the Fund for PPS.
