FPPS Launches Ed Feeney Athletics Fund

Anonymous donors have given the Foundation for Portland Public Schools (FPPS) a $50,000 matching donation to launch the Ed Feeney Athletics Fund, named after retired Portland High School girls basketball coach Ed Feeney. When Portland Public Schools coaches, teachers, or school social workers learn of a student who lacks basic athletic gear to play sports, the Foundation can now purchase that gear for students.

The Foundation is accepting further donations to the Ed Feeney Athletics Fund to assist even more students. All gifts will be matched dollar for dollar.

What our students and alumni have to say about Deering High School.

The guidance counselor at Deering was extremely helpful in figuring out how to get applications in and where to do my SAT’s.

I felt like my education [at DHS] wasn’t just based on the four classes that I’d take every day, it was everyone in the classroom.

I felt surrounded by really amazing people who were giving me knowledge I wouldn’t be able to find somewhere else.
