Who We Are
After five years of inactivity, the Newberg Education Foundation is re-emerging as an advocate to raise community support for education rather than dollars. As an existing nonprofit, the Newberg Education Foundation is positioned to move beyond its historical identity as a fundraising organization and re-establish the organization to lead a collective impact strategy. The Foundation will continue to manage scholarship funds for other organizations.
Mission / Goals
The Newberg Education Foundation’s mission is to align the community’s support to positively impact the academic success of our children and youth. We’re doing this by serving as the backbone organization that focuses the community’s collective actions on a common agenda.
Who We Serve
Newberg School District students, parents, and faculty.
