The mission of the foundation is to inspire and motivate the community, including philanthropic partners, businesses, families, and former and current staff and students in the support of Milwaukee Public Schools and the academic achievement of its students.
The foundation seeks to fund programs and projects not affordable through public funds to provide enhanced learning opportunities for students, encourage innovative educational programs, and recognize and support teachers.
Contributions are greatly appreciated and will be used to directly benefit Milwaukee Public Schools – the students, staff, and programs. Donors may direct gifts to the MPS Foundation to support a variety of ongoing programs and/or specify the gift to help ensure funding long into the future.
Donors may choose to designate a gift to match personal giving preferences. Learn about specific ways you can help leave a legacy for MPS students, staff, and schools.
