Our Mission

Ensuring more teachers, classes and experiences for all Lake Oswego students. With your help we can make a difference. Learn more and get involved.

Help Fund Vital Teaching Positions

The Foundation’s mission is critical to each student’s success. Your gift directly supports students by ensuring that we have more teachers and more academic enrichment in our district. We ask for your support each year to help fund vital teaching positions. Gifts today fund next year's teaching positions. We rely on your support each year to fund those positions. We are seeking participation from each family in the district in a way and amount that works for you. 

Thank you for all you do to help keep Lake Oswego the #1 school district in the state!

Welcome Back!

Hello Lake Oswego Families,

As we prepare to embark on another exciting school year, I'd like to take a moment to personally thank all of our parents and the larger community for your dedication and your unwavering commitment to our students’ success.  I am truly grateful.

I am filled with excitement and optimism for the new school year that lies ahead. I’d also like to take a moment to recognize the Lake Oswego Schools Foundation volunteer board led by president Maxine Walkenhorst. This incredible group of parents and community members are the engine of the work of the Foundation. 

I’d like to say a special hello and welcome to families new to the district. The Foundation board offers ways to get to know each other better; please look for Foundation new family events such as coffees and a happy hour hosted this fall.

Through your support to the Lake Oswego Schools Foundation, you are instilling a love for learning in our students, inspiring them to reach for the stars and achieve their full potential. The possibilities are endless, and I am confident that together, we can continue to make a profound difference in the lives of our students. 

Thank you, thank you, thank you for supporting education through the Lake Oswego School Foundation.
