UPDATE: Spring for Teachers 2020 POSTPONED

Like so many other organizations in our community, we are postponing our “Spring for Teachers 2020” fundraiser.  No specific new date has been scheduled at this time. We are taking our direction from the City of Portland and the CDC to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

Tickets to Spring for Teachers will be honored at the rescheduled event and will support our Fall 2020 Teacher Grant Program. If you would like a refund, please let contact the Foundation directly at info@foundationforpps.org. Please stay safe and healthy and stay tuned for more information on this event later this year.


The Spring for Teachers event helps us to fund our annual Teacher Grants Program. Enjoy a casual evening out for adults with music, a raffle, light refreshments, and a cash bar with beverages from Allagash Brewing. Meet new friends who share a commitment to Portland Public Schools and learn more about the Foundation’s efforts to support the Portland Promise and the Teacher Grants Program.

Teacher Grants are awarded to teachers in all schools, at all levels from Pre-K through Adult Education. Teacher Grants support teacher-led enhancements, innovations, projects and enrichment. The Foundation considers funding for everything from books, technology and equipment to field trips, guest speakers and more. In the Fall 2019 grant cycle, 75 teacher grants were awarded totaling just over $47,000. This directly impacted the educational experiences of over 5,000 Portland Public School students!

Help us do it again in 2020 by attending Spring for Teachers!
