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 twelve 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.

  • Go Warriors! Board awarded $1250 to Warriors Go Beyond the Building, to transform the blacktop, a space just outside the back of the building where students play basketball and get some air during lunch, into a welcoming spot suitable for classroom and social activities. This space has the potential to benefit several aspects of our student and staff experience including:
    • Outdoor classroom that would allow students and educators to continue their learning while getting fresh air
    • An extension of our Wellness Center, supporting student health and wellness in a setting outside of the busy building
    • A space for students to socialize and connect during lunch breaks - this is so important after being isolated at home during COVID
