Volunteer with DDEF

The David Douglas Educational Foundation (DDEF), is a group of volunteers from our community who work to support our kids. Since their establishment in 1991, their efforts have touched many corners of David Douglas. Chances are a book, musical instrument, science tool or sports equipment has been put into your child’s hands thanks to the Foundation. DDEF also supports after school programs, senior scholarships, DD Community Sports and the Kids’ Fund. Eyeglasses, dental appointments, gloves and bike helmets are just a few of the expenses covered by the Kids’ Fund.

DDEF is completely volunteer run. The Foundation is looking for people to serve on their board or help with activities. Volunteering can be as little as two hours a month. And many tasks, like writing thank you notes, sending emails or making phone calls, can be done from home. All are welcome – parents, community members and District staff (current and retired). If you are interested in a simple and rewarding way to get involved in your community contact the Foundation. 

For more details, or to find out how you can help, please call DDEF President, Beverly Fischer at 503-255-1149. Or email Holly at holly_effenberger@ddsd40.org
