Our Mission

The Gresham-Barlow Education Foundation provides funding to enrich and enhance the quality of education for all Gresham-Barlow School District students through classroom Innovation Grants and district-wide literacy support.

Sports for Health Grant

The Gresham-Barlow Education Foundation is one of 17  nonprofits to receive a Sport for Heath Grant from the Portland Trail Blazers presented by Nike.

The $10,000 grant will fund adaptive equipment for special needs students at Barlow High School.  Students will have access to modified basketball hoops, baseball and golf equipment as well as yoga and dance supplies.   Standard PE equipment such as playground balls that are larger and brightly colored will allow students with visual impairments to participate in a variety of PE activities.

Barlow High School teacher Katie Zimmerman’s goal is to create a PE class that includes both students with special needs and typical students to encourage positive relationships and mutual respect.  Research shows that when students with special needs are exposed and have positive interactions with their typically developing peers, they grown exponentially and show academic gains including improved performance on standardized tests, behavior and motivation to learn.
