Through gifts to the Corvallis Schools Foundation our community provides resources to enrich and enhance
the educational opportunities and experiences of Corvallis Students.
WHO WE ARE
Formed in 1998, the Corvallis Schools Foundation is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) tax exempt foundation. Its purpose is to raise funds to benefit the education of Corvallis School District students. The volunteer board is composed of community members, parents, and one representative of the Corvallis Board of Trustees. The Corvallis School Superintendent serves as an ex-officio member of the board.
WHAT WE DO
The Corvallis Schools Foundation raises and manages funds from individuals, corporations, and foundations, as well as through fundraising events. Foundation funds are used to support academic and extracurricular opportunities for students that are above and beyond the capacity of the School District budget. Funds are generally distributed by the Foundation Board through grant applications from School District staff. The Foundation is focused on helping the School District provide unique, innovative, and enriching opportunities for its students.
WHY WE DO IT
Corvallis School District #1 was established in 1914. Since that time, its buildings and programs have provided outstanding educational opportunities for the community’s children and adults; a center for musical, theatrical, and sports events; and a year-round gathering place for community activities. Corvallis is the heart of the Bitterroot Valley and the Corvallis Schools are the heart of Corvallis. The Corvallis School District has a reputation for quality – for going the extra mile to meet the needs of all children. Support for the Corvallis Schools Foundation is a way for all of us to ensure that the tradition of excellence continues and reaches all students.
