The Village Fun Run is a community building, movement focused, family fun-time as well as a great way for families to raise much needed funds for our beloved Portland Village School! Why we are asking for your support- Portland Village School, a public Waldorf inspired charter school sponsored by the Portland Public School district, relies on the donations and the fundraising efforts of its community. As a charter school we receive 58% of the funds that other neighborhood schools receive. This school year our community has raised almost $100,000 from donations, pledges, and strategic fundraisers. We need to reach $174,000 to help cover the cost of quality materials, student field trips, our teacher’s professional development, and to cover our rent increase. With your help we can hit our goal of $25,000 with this fun, family friendly, active event!
