Schools foundations partner for #GivingTuesday

Four foundations benefiting public schools in Washington County are partnering to promote “Giving Tuesday” as a chance to boost education philanthropy and raise awareness of the needs of the 79,000 public school students in the county.

The Hillsboro Schools Foundation, the Education Foundation of Forest Grove, the Beaverton Education Foundation and the Foundation for Tigard-Tualatin Schools have united to join in the Dec. 2 national #GivingTuesday social media movement, a day designated three years ago to promote giving to nonprofits and charities during the holiday shopping season.

“Even though we are separate organizations, the schools foundations of Washington County share the common mission of improving educational opportunities for the schools we serve,” said Laura Bekken, president of Hillsboro Schools Foundation. “We urge people to support schools foundations where they live, work and play.”
