We believe a strong education improves the lives of young people and is vital to sustaining our community. We also believe that education is a public good. We are all better off when kids are educated. The Corvallis Public Schools Foundation works to bring resources to classrooms and teachers to support every student at every public school in Corvallis.

We work to bridge the public schools with community members that value and support public education as priority in Corvallis and we raise private funds to help close funding gaps in targeted areas.

Student Support

We provide resources to help students achieve academic success in three primary ways. In addition to targeted support to improve graduation rates, students are supported by classroom Learning Enrichment Grants, and additional resources for economically disadvantaged students including the Student Opportunity for Success Fund and the Homeless Education Fund.
