The Rieke Foundation is affiliated with the Portland Schools Foundation, which is an independent, non-profit organization that plays a vital role in our community to provide funds for schools and advance initiatives that directly support teachers, schools and parent involvement. The money raised through the three events below is used to add an additional teacher or other support staff for the school. The principal and staff decide how to best use the funds each year.

Rieke Educators Fund

The Rieke Educators Fund works by having donors contribute a one-time gift, or recurring monthly withdrawal (via their bank or VISA) amount to the Rieke ES account managed by the All Hands Raised organization. The campaign is our annual ask for cash donations to support the foundation. We ask all Rieke families to consider a tax-deductible one-time cash donation or a recurring monthly donation.
