Friends of Powell Butte School, (FOPBS), a non profit 501(c)(3) was formed in August of 2009 to collect the funds needed ($274,000) to keep the 4th and 5th grades at the then Powell Butte Elementary School. The $274,000 figure included a $100,000 loan. With fundraisers sponsored by FOPBS and the dedication of the community, the loan was satisfied in August of 2010.
Friends of Powell Butte School and the original PBES PTC (parent-teachers club) agreed to join together in year of 2010 and help provide the needs of the Powell Butte Community Charter School. Presently FOPBS is the entity providing a hot lunch program for the students of PBCCS. The lunch program receives no government funding or financial help from the school budget and thrives mainly on income from fundraisers and student account payments.
