Partner with Edison Breakfast

Our annual Partner with Edison Breakfast takes place in November. Friends, families, supporters and community members who want to learn more about our transformational program come together for a meal and listen to the story of our school. Every year, this event inspires our community with the stories and aspirations of our students, alumni and families. Together, we generate crucial funds that help empower students with learning differences to experience academic success and personal growth. The proceeds support our financial aid program, professional development for staff and technology upgrades at the school. 

This year we hosted 390 guests at the Oregon Zoo. Guests heard from junior Jack Holmes and former student Wilson Sherman-Burton about the importance of Edison High School.  Past parent, Anne Stein-Gray, shared her “Edison Story” about the positive impact the school has had on her family.  Thank you to all of our Edison families, friends, and supporters.

If you were not able to attend the event, please consider making a gift through our donation link or by using our  pledge form. Thank you again!

How You Can Help

As the only high school in the Portland area specifically designed for students with learning differences, Edison High School is a valuable asset to the community. We deeply appreciate all those who recognize—and choose to invest in—the potential of the special young people we serve.

Edison High School is incorporated as a nonprofit organization and receives no government funding or assistance. Our basic operational funds are generated through tuition, while the remainder comes from donations.

Edison students rely on the generosity of people like you to support and sustain the important work we do here. We invite community members to contribute to the advancement of the school's mission, and to help us offer financial aid to underserved youth with learning differences who have nowhere else to turn.

No matter how big or small, your tax-deductible donation helps Edison High School provide the best possible education for students with learning differences. To make your donation, please click here.

On behalf of our students, thank you for your generosity and support!

Each year, Edison High School hosts the Brilliance Benefit, an enchanting and inspiring evening of friendship, food and fundraising. The Brilliance Benefit is one of the two annual events where we appeal directly to you, our community champions, for gifts to support our tuition assistance fund. Attendees enjoy dinner, an auction and, for the price of a raffle ticket, a chance to win a fabulous Hawaiian vacation. We invite you to partner with us to ensure that all of our students reach their full potential! 

2018 Brilliance Benefit Update 

The 2018 Brilliance Benefit took place on March 10th, at the Sentinel Hotel in downtown Portland.  With a packed house of 350 supporters we were able to raise $370,000 to support financial aid, technology in the classroom, enhanced curriculum and teacher professional development.

Thank you to everyone who attended and volunteered to make the Brilliance Benefit a record-breaking event.

Hawaiian Vacation Raffle Tickets

As part of our Brilliance Benefit every year, we offer the wonderful opportunity to win an all-expenses-paid vacation.  The winner of the raffle enjoys a six-night stay in oceanview accommodations at the Grand Wailea Resort for up to two adults and two children. This fabulous prize includs a $1,000 gift card for any hotel amenity, including golf, and $1,000 in cash to help offset travel expenses.

Gift of Learning Society

Imagine a student who has been accepted to Edison, and who truly needs the specialized education we offer, but is unable to attend because her/his family cannot afford the tuition. It's a heartbreaking scenario, and one we encounter on a more frequent basis than in the past. In response, we created the Gift of Learning Society (GOLS). Funds donated by GOLS members are used primarily to support Edison's financial aid program.

The generous contributors who join the Gift of Learning Society make a five-year pledge of $1,000 or more per year. For the equivalent of just $2.74 a day, you can become a GOLS member and help a student continue his/her education at Edison High School! 

Gift of Learning Society members are united by a desire to help students with learning differences develop the academic skills, social skills and self-advocacy tools necessary to reach their full potential and to thrive in adulthood.
