LEAVE A LEGACY
Coos Bay Schools Community Foundation was established in 2006 to serve the students of our school district as well as the community in which we live. As the funding for schools became increasingly unreliable, this foundation was seen as a way to supply needed funding to programs and projects submitted by teachers and staff that directlyvbenefit and enrich the lives of our students.vFunded projects have included building birdhouses, ceramic and mask projects, science modules, book collections, and cultural programs to name only a few.
