Thank you Friends and Supporters of Green Schools!
Oregon Green Schools Association is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We receive our funding from the generous contributions of our supporters, summit sponsors and from Friends of Oregon Green Schools memberships.
In addition to the supporters below, individuals and businesses personalize their support by sponsoring their neighborhood school. The Oregon Green Schools program is free for schools however the Oregon Green Schools Association relies on grants, donations and sponsorships to put on trainings, host the annual summit and all of the other things that OGSA does for schools. Financial assistance at any level is greatly appreciated! Individuals and businesses can also sign up to be the official sponsor of their neighborhood school. The cost is $300/school but a donation of any size is welcomed! To learn more about how sponsors are recognized, please email us through our contact form. To see a map showing which schools are currently sponsored and which are not, visit the Sponsor Your School page.
