We are both thankful, and fortunate, that so many families generously donate money to the school throughout the year. Your donation helps our children enjoy a high level of education despite shortfalls in public school funding. Please help us maintain this level and show that you are “ALL IN” for our kids by making your donation now.

Donations to Friends of Forest Park Elementary (FOFPE) are the only way to pay for additional staff for our school when Portland Public School money isn’t enough for Principal Lisa Newlyn’s staffing plan. In addition to paying for staff, your donation helps pay for classroom resources, safety improvements, learning supplements and more. A portion of your donation also goes to Local School Foundations, a non-profit that helps foster equitable opportunities and benefits for all students in Portland Public Schools. This year, we have two goals - raise

$300,000 and have 100% of FPE families donate towards our goal of $700/student.



Not comfortable donating online? There are many ways to donate to the school:

• Send a check in the attached envelope (payable to FOFPE)

• Donate through your employer’s giving portal to receive a corporate match

(choose Forest Park Elementary School Foundation)

• Send a check and submit an employee match with your employer

Thank you for supporting Forest Park Elementary. If you have any questions, please contact Kimberlee Bouska at ksmithym@gmail.com.
