Ways to Work with Madison Public Schools Foundation

The Foundation offers a variety of ways for individuals, families, civic organizations, and businesses to support our public schools. We invite you to learn more about our most popular programs and donor programs to see what aligns best with your values.


Through this program, Madison’s public schools are “adopted” by a local business or organization to form a mutually enriching partnership. Each partnership is custom tailored to the needs and desires of both the school and the partnering group. An Adopt-a-School partnership requires a one-year commitment, with many enduring for years.

Are you a business or organization looking to make an impact in your community? The Foundation offers robust recognition opportunities through our Schools Make Madison Sponsors program. By taking this step, you will be supporting the Foundation’s mission, programs and services dedicated to creating schools where all scholars thrive, and graduate ready for college, career and community involvement.
