ACCESS Academy Foundation

The Mission of the Foundation:   Augment Portland Public School Budget For Staff and Programs

  • The ACCESS Academy Foundation raises money to fund additional staff positions/FTE @ ACCESS; additional staff– teachers, specialists, and educational assistants – can only be funded through a school foundation.
  • The ACCESS Academy Foundation is run by parent volunteers and is an affiliate of All Hands Raised (the Portland Public Schools Foundation). One-third of funds raised above $10,000 go to the PPS Equity Fund to help schools that are less able to raise funds close the achievement gap
  • Watch this video to learn more about local school foundations and the PPS Equity Fund.
