We believe a great education begins and ends with great teachers. More teachers mean more individualized instruction, more inspiring electives and a more diverse curriculum for every student in our district. With your help, we can overcome reductions in state funding and keep Lake Oswego schools the very best in the state and the pride of our community.

Kids in every school across Lake Oswego count on your support every year. Your donations to the Lake Oswego Schools Foundation go solely to hiring and retaining teachers. The $1.5 million raised last year funds the equivalent of 20 full-time teachers in Lake Oswego classrooms this year – that’s something we can all be proud of.
Without your donations, many programs in music, fine arts, PE, math and science would disappear. Our wide diversity of electives and AP courses would greatly diminish. And we would lose teachers who are specially trained for intervention when students struggle or fall behind. Your donation to the Foundation ensures a higher quality of teaching and learning at every school and for every child in Lake Oswego. This is why we are all so grateful for your continued support!
