27,000 Scholars     52 Schools     ONE Foundation

The Madison Public Schools Foundation supports the education of every child by raising private funds, awarding grants, developing community partnerships, and advocating for Madison’s public schools. We believe that every child deserves a high quality and equitable education. We pursue our mission with intentional focus on diversity, equity and inclusion.

The Teacher Support Network’s unique online store opened to District staff on August 23 to help ready their classrooms for returning students.

The Teacher Support Network helps to meet the need for student supplies and classroom materials that emerge throughout the school year. We are raising funds that will enable schools to purchase items from our online store at favorable prices. Our goal is to continue to reduce the $1.4M teachers spend of their monies annually to support student needs.

Supplies and tools for learning are distributed to district classrooms so scholars can learn and thrive.

Connect with Us to Support Our Public Schools

The 2020-21 school year presented challenges and opportunities unlike any other in our 20-year history. For all the unknowns and changes, the commitment of the Madison Public Schools Foundation to our community’s 52 schools and 27,000 scholars remained steadfast. As we continue our journey of COVID recovery, we fully expect to learn of new areas of need across the district as we progress further into the 2021-22 school year.

A Message About Combating Racism in Our Community
In support of Superintendent Carlton Jenkins and the Madison Metropolitan School District’s 27,000 students, the board and staff of the Foundation for Madison’s Public Schools urge you to demand, in Dr. Jenkins’ words, “a just and equitable society for our children and the generations who follow.”
