Formed in 1994, the Parkrose Educational Foundation is an independent 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Our mission is to raise and distribute funds to enhance the educational experiences of Parkrose School District students.
Our vision is to create an inclusive community of future leaders that understand that by supporting our combined talents we create a community that is rich in culture, knowledge and development, for the benefit of all. Using an equitable lens, we move forward with grants that enrich and encourage our students to become lifetime learners and capable stewards of our blended communities.
