About D9

About D9 Foundation

The D-9 Foundation was formed as a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation in 1994.

Our mission is to establish a continuing foundation for School District 9 with a two-fold purpose:

Every graduating senior or GED recipient who desires to continue their education, may receive scholarship support upon approved application.

Our Scholarships

The D9 Foundation strives to ensure that "Every graduating senior or GED recipient who desires to continue their education may receive scholarship support upon approved application."

The Foundation hosts various yearly events to raise money to fund scholarships. In addition, thanks to local individuals and businesses, over $60,000 has been awarded in scholarships to District Nine seniors every year.

Scholarship funds are invested in the Oregon Community Foundation in order to ensure continuity and fiscal responsibility.
