Maplewood Foundation is a parent-led, non-profit fundraising group benefiting Maplewood Elementary. We are 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.
