Serving Bend-La Pine Schools
Awarded in grants and scholarships
Started in 1988, the Bend-La Pine Education Foundation is an independent, 501(c)(3) non-profit comprised of parents, community leaders, educators, and citizens who share the belief that a vibrant public school system is essential to the social and economic well-being of our community.
Together, we provide funding for an array of scholarships, grants, and academic programs built to empower both teachers and students to create a brighter future, and to help those most in need maximize their academic and personal success.
