The Beaverton Education Foundation hopes you'll Answer the Call when our students call you between October 11-20th.

Answer the Call from student volunteers from all Beaverton public high schools asking community members to participate in Beaverton Education Foundation's annual campaign.

Before my son Liam took a writing-intensive elective in middle school, he dreaded writing. Just one semester not only transformed his writing abilities, but also boosted his confidence in writing and all his academic classes. He starts Mountainside High School this year ready to learn and excited for new challenges. Our family is grateful that the Beaverton Education Foundation supported special reading materials for Liam's class, and invested more than $357,000 last year in 112 projects across all 54 District schools.

That's why we not only look forward to Answering the Call every year when Beaverton high school students reach out during the annual Beaverton Education Foundation student fundraising campaign, we also volunteer. Since he was in elementary school, Liam and his older sister Kate loved being a part of the excitement and cheering on the callers. Now that Liam's in high school, he looks forward to making these calls and connecting with BEF donors.

We hope you'll Answer the Call when our students call you between October 11-20th.

Beaverton high schoolers volunteer at the phone banks because BEF programs open new doors for them. Thanks to generous donors like you, BEF reached 83% of Beaverton students — that's more than 32,000 children. With your help, we can continue incubating promising ideas, creating hands-on learning opportunities and filling in funding gaps, all while connecting the community to the classroom.

By making a gift at, you can ensure that our students are given more opportunities and tools to succeed. Together, all our children can reach their highest potential.

Thank you for your support!

Beth, parent of two Beaverton School District students and longtime BEF donor and volunteer
