The Corvallis Schools Foundation is a community partner that helps make our schools the best places to work and learn. They fund various innovative projects and their impact on education is substantial. The learning environment, whether inside or outside, is enhanced for both students and staff. When there is this much impact, we know that student interest and achievement increases. The foundation lives out its core purpose in all their actions:  “Inspire, Innovate, and Invest in Opportunities for all Corvallis Students.”

As a parent, I learned the Corvallis Schools Foundation funds programs including the purchase of blue bikes to enhance the "classrooms without walls" project, tablets to help with reading and communication, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) labs and so many other opportunities that strengthen the curriculum already offered by Corvallis schools.  Both of our children have benefited from the work the Foundation does to support the school district.
