Eugene Education Foundation:
The Eugene Education Foundation builds strong public schools by promoting community involvement and encouraging financial support. EEF was established in 1993 to support all students in Eugene School District 4J.
Community members can make gifts that are unrestricted, or designated for a particular school or program. They also can be placed in an endowment to benefit students for years to come. Because EEF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, gifts are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law.
For more information, please visit www.eeflane.org or call (541) 343-6877.
Want to know how Oregon school districts spend money and how students are doing in school? That information and more is available at the Open Books website, thanks to the ChalkBoard Project.
We think it’s important to share data in ways our community can easily understand, because knowledge is key to good decision‐making and is especially critical as we face shrinking resources. Keeping parents and citizens informed is a top priority. Most Oregonians don't know how public school dollars are spent, how their local school district fared on the latest assessment test, or how many kids are graduating from high school. We’d like to help change that.
For instance, did you know that central administration accounts for just 2.6 percent of 4J's budget? Or that Oregon teachers average 13 years of experience? Or that more Eugene students meet or exceed academic standards in reading, writing and math than average for Oregon? At www.openbooksproject.org, you can look up Eugene School District 4J and compare us to all the surrounding school districts, or to similar-sized districts across the state.
The Chalkboard Project is an independent non-profit project created in 2004. Its goal is to inspire Oregonians to make the state's K–12 public schools among the nation’s best, while strengthening our school system’s financial accountability to taxpayers.
