Spirit Mountain Community Fund Awards $25,000

Beaverton Education Foundation is honored to announce that the Spirit Mountain Community Fund has awarded the Foundation a grant of $25,000 for use in expanding BEF Camp Achieve Summer program.

This grant will be awarded during the Spring Grant cycle at the Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde Tribal Governance Center in Grant Ronde on March 15. This is the third Spirit Mountain Community Fund grant the Foundation has received.

The goal of Camp Achieve is to mitigate and prevent “summer slide” or the loss of learning that occurs over summer. This program provides a multi-week collaborative summer school offering high-quality research-based instruction to serve students of all abilities and skills at multiple schools throughout the district. This award from Spirit Mountain Community Fund support puts this program on the path to offering Camp Achieve nine schools this summer and ultimately, 15 schools by Summer 2019.

BEF, through the BEF Kids Count Grant Program, continues it’s strong tradition of minimizing the “summer slide” and is thrilled to continue working with the partner schools to build on past successes and share our thanks to the Spirit Mountain Community Fund as they will be a cornerstone support for the programs.
