One of the most fulfilling parts of my job has been reconnecting Detroit Public Schools alumni by introducing them to the Foundation. No matter where they live or how long ago they graduated, these alumni feel a strong bond to their school experience and to Detroit itself.

We have heard from alumni who have long wanted to give back, get involved and help the current generation of students.  But, until they found the Foundation or we connected with them, they didn’t know how. The DPS Foundation helps alumni (and others) support successful programs inside Detroit schools.

If you’re a DPS graduate, or know someone who is, we’d really appreciate the chance to help with the reconnection. You can sign up for our e-newsletter to learn more about how alumni support is making a difference. We also would like to hear more about you – where you are, the impact that your education has had on your life, even your favorite stories about school.

Please just send me an email at Anything you can do to help us understand the alumni experience and connection to our work in Detroit would be greatly appreciated and helpful. I look forward to hearing from you.
