Raising funds for innovative educational projects at Oregon School for the Deaf Tax ID 20-5805821


™Friends of OSD was established in 2006 to raise awareness of the Oregon School for the Deaf (OSD) and to assist in funding innovative educational projects. ™Friends of OSD was not created to replace or supplant the fiscal responsibilities of the State of Oregon.  ™Rather, FOSD is an independent non-profit organization seeking to assist OSD by enhancing educational experiences for deaf and hard-of-hearing children in Oregon.  FOSD has funded a fully functioning TV studio for student productions, a greenhouse for plant raising and sale projects, a Family Learning Program, participation in robotics, Academic Bowl and Space Camp, sensory-motor equipment for special needs students, and contributed to a pool lift and positive behavior reward program, among other things. Currently, we are raising money for a computer controlled digital router for our Construction Technology Program.  Training on this machine will allow our students to move right into high-paying jobs out of high school.
