Health is Wealth
Our Play Every Day Campaign is Bringing New Life to P.E. and Recess!
Help Us Finish Strong!
Coinciding with the implementation of MMSD’s new Wellness Policy, and as a part of our mission to support the programs and initiatives of the district, the Foundation launched the Play Every Day campaign in July 2022. The focus: To purchase equipment and support programs directly related to physical activity that benefit ALL students.
Currently, we are 70% of the way to our $250,000 goal! Schools have received spending budgets and are making PE and recess equipment purchases. With your help, we can do even more!
Dedicated to Madison. Focused on our youth.
Our schools make Madison. They prepare our children for a rapidly changing world that demands new skills and the ability to navigate an increasingly complex and challenging world. We stand with our public schools, working tirelessly to provide resources for new projects and programs that otherwise wouldn’t be possible.
See our impact.

Millions of dollars awarded through endowment grants.
Adopt-a-School. Adopt progress.
Since its inception 15 years ago, our Adopt-a-School program has forged a deep connection within the community and our public schools. Through volunteering, in-kind donations and financial gifts, our partners have invested thousands of hours and over $5.5 million dollars in support.
Our teachers. Our heroes.
Our Teacher Support Network provides all Madison schools and students with essential supplies, snacks, personal hygiene items, and recess equipment. For decades teachers have filled these needs. Our goal is to eliminate those out-of-pocket expenses.
Empowering through endowment.
The first of its kind in the U.S., our school-specific endowment funds provided over $100,000 in the 2021-22 school year for projects schools deemed a priority. This pioneering spirit lives on.
Help us empower our students through opportunity.
“What can be more important to a child’s future than an excellent education? Their success is an investment in all our futures.”
