Our mission is to make Oregon City the best place to raise a child.
In order to do that, we provide financial support to students and our schools so that all children in the greater Oregon City Community are inspired and prepared to be life-long learners and productive citizens of the community, the country, and the world.
Oregon City Schools Foundation seeks to develop a community wide commitment to support a quality education for all children from birth through 12th grade. We will promote a college and career going culture, beginning in elementary school that encourages and supports enrollment in college or career education upon graduation from high school. Our goal is a highly skilled work force that lives, works and plays in Oregon City.
Our volunteer board members are essential to the foundation.

OCSF believes student success is achieved by each student being a proficient reader by 3rd grade. OCSF will put books into each child’s hand beginning at birth and continuing through elementary school.
OCSF believes a well rounded education is key to student success. Our middle school investment includes support for outdoor school and our music programs.
High school presents new challenges with college and career preparedness as our focus. OCSF will assist students with scholarships for SAT testing, applications and college enrollment expenses.
