At its meeting on January 21, the DPS Foundation Board of Directors adopted new goals for the period 2016 – 2020. The goals included in the updated Strategic Plan represent continuity and forward movement. The expectation is that these goals will enhance our ability to achieve the mission and vision of the Foundation.

MISSION

To create and enhance educational opportunities for Detroit Public Schools students.

VISION

Every DPS student will receive the support needed to achieve his/her full potential.

STRATEGIC GOALS 2016 – 2020

  • FUNDRAISING

    Improve fundraising strategies that provide monies to meet operational expenses and provide grant support approximating $800,000 to $1 million dollars annually.

  • DIFFERENTIATE DPS

    Adopt and create program strategies that will differentiate DPSF in its ability to impact education in DPS.

  • GROWTH & ENGAGEMENT

    Enlarge and engage the board in the work of the Foundation.

  • OUTREACH

    Develop better communication strategies between the DPS Foundation, DPS leadership, the foundation community, and the general public.

These goals will guide the work of the staff and board for the five year period ahead. We look forward to fulfilling the goals and thus making a significant contribution to the teaching and learning that occurs in the schools.
