STK Foundation Grant

Portland Education Foundation Awarded $50,000 Grant from The Stephen and Tabitha King Foundation for PreK-Grade 5 Literacy Resources!

This program addresses a general lack of funding for books and literacy resources, helps to build collections that honor and celebrate culture and language differences, thereby helping to meet students where they are and bridge gaps between students from different backgrounds.

“We know that students benefit greatly from having a variety of reading materials at different levels and genres. We rarely have the opportunity to make this level of investment in classroom libraries,” said Portland Public Schools (PPS) Superintendent Xavier Botana.

“We are very grateful to The Stephen and Tabitha King Foundation for their generous gift.”
