The success of the Education Foundation of Pendleton is built on community donations and teachers creating experiences for their students by submitting grant requests to our foundation.
In 2015, the Education Foundation of Pendleton started an annual fundraiser, Grillin' for Grants, allowing us to raise additional money to fund more grants each year. We are grateful for our faithful donors throughout the year, as well as those who support and attend the fundraiser each fall.
Requests for grants always exceed available funds, so there is a continual need to raise awareness and money. We hope you can join us at one of our events in support of Pendleton students and teachers.
Grillin' for Grants Successful in 4th Year!
