The Detroit Public Schools Foundation is a:
We are an independent 501(c)3 entity that raises money from the private sector to support students in the public schools
In response to funding requests, we award grants to teachers, schools, non-profits operating in the schools, for programs and materials designed to enhance the students’ educational experiences.
We connect schools and programs to supporters.
We help the general public to understand the opportunities and challenges experienced every day in our educational institutions.
Our organization is led by a group of dedicated community leaders who give of their time, talent, and treasure to help ensure that every student has an opportunity to receive a quality education.
Every day our team work to raise the money, award the grants, and do whatever it takes to fulfill the Foundation’s mission.
