Maplewood Foundation is a parent-led, non-profit fundraising group benefiting Maplewood Elementary. It is a part of the non-profit The Fund for Portland Public Schools. Money raised by Foundation is used to provide enrichment teachers and educational support staff at Maplewood. Historically, funds have been used to fund Librarians, Technology Education, Physical Education, Educational Assistants, and Music. A portion of the funds raised is added to The Fund for PPS, which provides grants to schools that meet PPS criteria for funding.

What is our fundraising goal this year? 

We hope to raise $60,000 to hire two Educational Assistants for the 2023-24 school year.

What is an Educational Assistant and why do we need them?

What type of events does the Foundation host?

Foundation events include fundraisers, our annual Auction, Fred Meyer Rewards, monthly donations, and direct giving at any time.
