Everyone across School District 4J works hard to prepare for the return of our students each year. EEF provides a total of over $175,000 in grants, with at least one to every school in the district, as well as many important district programs. This is possible solely because of the contributions of donors like you. We cannot thank you enough.
EEF’s work is possible because the Eugene community believes in the value of strong public schools. EEF is committed to funding worthy projects at every school in the district, because we know that every single school has unmet needs. Here is just a sample of district grants you made possible:
- Over $25,000 for AVID college and career readiness at middle and high schools
- $20,000 to make artists-in-residence available to every single elementary school
- $10,000 to continue our pre-kindergarten readiness program, Kids in Transition to School
- School grants included science, technology, music, the arts, and reading. We encourage you to look at the full list of grants on our website, eeflane.org!
It is our mission to work together to change the educational futures of our kids. Consistent with our mission of “promoting educational excellence and opportunities for all students” EEF will support the school bond for 4J, which will allow the district to build 3 new schools as well as to make a huge range of critical improvements to facilities, expand new curriculum, and so much more. Together, we have the opportunity to raise over $300 million for the future of our kids. This bond will have an incredible impact on the next generation of Eugene kids, and we urge you to lend your vote to the future of our community. Please contact us any time with your questions.
As always, thank you for your enduring and significant support of our public schools. We’re so excited to see students benefit from these opportunities, and to share their experiences with you.
