Go Warriors! Opportunity Fund
GO WARRIORS! ALOHA HIGH SCHOOL OPPORTUNITY FUND
We invite you to join us (class of ’70 and ’71), in networking with other alumni to build the Go Warriors! Aloha High School Opportunity Fund! The original alumni classes have now been joined by more than eight classes and the community.
To celebrate our 45th and 44th reunion, we established the Go Warriors! Aloha High School Opportunity Fund! It awards grants through the Beaverton Education Foundation to small non athletic student groups (8 or more) with seed money and fund optional class activities in a wide range of areas. The fund pools the resources of all alumni classes and the Aloha community to encourage initiative, planning, budgeting, problem solving, project execution and delivery. It it used to stimulate student interest in exploring career and personal development.
Why build an endowment fund?
Traditionally endowment funds established by alumni were in the domain of private high schools. Recent news has focused on family income demographics of current students and educational funding cutbacks. Our effort will help change the current perception with a permanent resource and is a great way to let current and future students know that we care and consider them to be our most valuable asset as it was in the past!
The goal is to reach $50,000 to become a permanent endowment fund which grows and awards funds year after year. For more information contact AHS7071@gmail.com.
Now the BEF Beaverton's Choice Project link https://www.beavertonedfoundation.org/beavertons-choice/ will immediately update the fund total and send a receipt reflecting your gift.
We also have an AHS 50th Anniversary Celebration video posted on Youtube - - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AUkGEWOr2Rs with event pictures/videos. The event was well received and had over 300 alumni, staff, and community members attend.

Endowment Fund Update
A special THANK YOU!!! to everyone who gave generously this year the gift to time, passion and funds!!! We are very honored to have your support!!! Thank you for making a difference to the students of AHS!!!
When Go Warriors! was established in 2015, our goal was/is to hit $50,000 in 5 years. We started with just two classes ’70-’71 and the Community. We now have gifts from 12 classes and the Community. The class of ’71 has exceeded $10,000 with ’70 and the Community poised to pass that milestone.
The class of ’76 made quick work of raising their gift of over $5000 in a few short days! Wow!! They have our Warrior speed record!!
Every decade has contributed in our effort! This year we received our first endowment earnings payout which will continue for years to come. Thank you so much to every class who has/is paying it forward!!!
We hope each class, class member, friend/s, and community member will push the Go Warriors! Aloha High School Endowment Fund over $50,000 in 2020!!
