CANCELLED: 2020 Adopt-a-School Summit & Community Breakfast 

Wednesday, March 25, 2020

PLEASE NOTE: In collaboration with our host, Blackhawk Church, and our presenting partners, we have decided to cancel the 2020 Adopt-a-School Summit. After reviewing Public Health Madison Dane County (PHMDC) recommendations regarding COVID-19, we made this decision in the best interests of the health and well-being of our staff, our volunteers, and community members. 

Although the Summit won’t happen, we are so grateful to the many experts who agreed to serve on panels, the many guests who had already registered and our sponsors, including Blackhawk Church, National Guardian Life and Associated Bank. Thank you kindly for your enduring support of the Foundation and of critical partnership programs like Adopt-a-School! Be healthy and well, and please feel free to direct questions to Mary Bartzen, Community Partnerships Director, at (608) 237-7723 or [email protected]

Thank you to all our Sponsors and Supporters

  • Associated Bank
  • Wells Fargo
  • Steve Stricker American Family Insurance Foundation
  • Each of our Adopt-a-School Partners
  • Our public school principals, teachers and staff
