The Foundation brings together students, educators, parents and community leaders to help transform Madison public schools. One way is through events that celebrate our public schools and share our success stories throughout the district. Our events are opportunities to come together as a community and share, discuss and rally support around the amazing things happening in our public schools.

 Circle of Friends

2019 Circle of Friends date coming soon – stay tuned!  Our signature event brings together more than 600 community members to share lunch and learn more about how we can play a role in building stronger public schools and a stronger community.

Through our program,  A Principal Experience, business leaders and others experience firsthand a standard morning in the life of a Madison public school principal — complete with strategizing, educating, laughing, singing, celebrating, and, of course, a lot of learning.

Adopt-a-School Summit

Every other year, the Adopt-a-School Summit gathers both current and potential Adopt-a-School partners to share best practices, success stories and brainstorm additional opportunities to support our public schools and students.

This event ran for three spectacular years, offering an evening of entertainment where school leaders and staff from across the district performed lip sync battles to raise funds for the Foundation. Thank you all for a wonderful run and click to see highlights of years past.
