About Us



Established in 1989, the Education Foundation of Forest Grove is an independent non-profit organization assisting the Forest Grove School District in expanding the educational opportunities and resources available to our students.

The Education Foundation of Forest Grove is a non-profit organization that was founded in 1989 to expand educational opportunity and support for the Forest Grove School District. The Foundation funds numerous teacher grants and several alumni scholarships each year. Our vision is to generate a diversity of opportunity through collaboration, creativity, and growth.  It is our hope that through the funds raised we will be able to help bring back programs and electives that have been lost in previous years.
