More Big Contributions Roll in for Portland Schools Campaign

Contributions to Portlanders for Schools

Contributions to the campaign for Portland Public Schools' $548 million construction bond continue to roll in. And these aren't small-time donations. Legacy Health System gave $5,000 recently. Northwest Natural Gas gave $25,000, and Adidas gave $10,000—the same amount as Nike gave last month.

The Portland School Board is expected to vote on Jan. 24 whether to couple the bond campaign with a second measure to promote the renewal of a five-year local-option levy. Members of the School Board first raised that possibility last month, and a subcommittee of the board agreed on Tuesday to forward the idea to the full board.

Here's the $548 million bond measure (PDF) that PPS filed today with Multnomah County elections.
