Pleasant Hill Education Foundation

Stand for Excellence


Since 1991 generous donors have made it possible for the Pleasant Hill Education Foundation to provide over $750,000 in funding to the students of Pleasant Hill. This is a profound accomplishment that would not have been possible without the support of so many.

Our purpose is as important today as it was 25 years ago since Oregon ranks #39 for investment in our schools. State funding does not cover the real cost of a quality public education, so we continue to ask parents and community members to assist with funding critical to maintaining academic excellence. Your donations will continue to improve every student�s experience by directly supporting the school�s most immediate needs.

Long time Pleasant Hill High School faculty member, Timothy Meinzen, recently gave a speech about the Foundation. His words truly demonstrate the impact of your gifts.

When I first came to teach here, I found a school thriving. Then the grim reaper of Measure 5 swept through and we felt like we were withering, but the Foundation has given us the tools to rebuild the school from the inside. What is important for me, for my colleagues, is that we know when we need something to help us teach, we say, �We can ask the Foundation.� That realization is like a huge dollop of hope in our increasingly challenging vocation. We know that the Foundation has our back.

What I most love about Pleasant Hill � after the kids I have been so privileged to teach these many years � is how deeply you all care for this pleasant school near a hill.
