Friends of Oregon School for Deaf

$65 of $1,000 goal

Raised by 3 people in 47 months
Friends of Oregon School for the Deaf (FOSD) is a nonprofit created in 2006 to enrich the education of students at the school.  We give grants to innovative educational projects such as sending students to   Academic Bowl, Space Camp and Robotics competitions.  We have funded equipment for special needs students and a Family Learning Program, created a TV Studio for creating weekly school broadcasts and a greenhouse for a plant raising and selling project.  Right now, we are raising funds for a computer controlled router for the Construction Technology Academy.  This tool is expensive ($45,000), but will make our graduates immediately employable at a high rate of pay.  $1,000 would really help boost our fundraising efforts for deaf and hard of hearing students.

Hi Everyone--
As you can see by the picture, our happy kids are signing. OSD is a communication-rich environment, where all students can connect with their teachers, staff and peers. The School is in need of many things in the area of construction training, the arts, physical education, literacy. Friends of OSD is here to support the best possible education for kids who are deaf or hard of hearing. Please consider supporting this cause, with as few or as many dollars as you can afford. Thanks so much.
