You’ve not heard much from the Foundation this year...typically we are calling bingo, running around Llewellyn and raising our paddles at the annual auction. However, this year is far from normal. Since we cannot have in-person fundraising events, we are hosting an online fundraising drive from now until the end of the school year.
The Foundation receives more than half of our funds from the paddle raise at the auction and during Run Llewellyn. Neither of which are happening in 2021. Help us meet our fundraising goal this year and support our students next school year. We are asking families to consider making a gift to support the Foundation.
What are we raising funds for? We are currently fundraising to support our counseling department and restore our FTE in counseling for next school year. As our students transition back into the classroom, we recognize that there will be considerable work to address the social-emotional needs of our students. Llewellyn's two counselors are vital to ensuring that each student is getting the social-emotional support they need to thrive in every aspect of learning.
We are asking families to consider making a gift this year to support the Foundation. Every gift, no matter the size, makes a difference for our kids! Here’s how you can help:
- Make a gift online today! https://www.aplos.com/aws/give/TheFundforPortlandPublicSchools/llewellynschoolfoundation
- Mail a check, made out to the Llewellyn Foundation, to the school at 6301 SE 14th Ave. Portland, OR 97202. This is also a great way to donate if you have a donor advised fund.
- Give through your employer. Some employers will match your gift, so you can double your impact to the school! Contact your HR department if you have questions about employee giving and matching funds.

About the Llewellyn Foundation: The Llewellyn Foundation raises funds to support teaching and staff positions at Llewellyn Elementary School. The Foundation differs from the PTA in that the Foundation only funds teaching positions within the school. www.thellewellynfoundation.org
You can also support the Foundation by signing up to participate in the Sellwood 5K! Funds this year are being split between Sellwood Middle School and Duniway, Lewis and Llewellyn Elementary Schools. Since we are not planning to host Run Llewellyn, here’s your chance to run AND support the Foundation at the same time. https://www.sellwoodmiddlefoundation.org/sellwood-5k
