Fundraising that fulfills. Meeting the priorities of our students and schools.
From day one of our existence, we’ve raised funds on behalf of Madison’s public schools ($35 million over 21 years). Working together, we find ways to help students excel. Our fundraising fuels innovation and bridges the gap left behind from inadequate funding of public schools.
Fuel our work. Create opportunities for kids.
Schools Make Madison Champions
Become a public education champion.
Individuals and families who donate a minimum of $500 per year are the backbone of ongoing, sustained progress. Their recurring annual gifts fuel our work and facilitate opportunities to strategically address school needs and priorities.
Schools Make Madison Sponsors
Become a public education sponsor.
The support of corporate partners who believe in the potential of all students and understand the importance of strong schools to a strong local economy plays a vital role in our work.
Leave a legacy for learning.
A planned gift ensures your support for Madison’s public schools lives on. Estate gifts create longstanding, meaningful change throughout our district.
“We support the Foundation because we believe in public education. We strongly believe that the public school system is a bedrock community institution that provides opportunity for all children. Through the Foundation’s financial support, many innovative projects that enhance the educational experience of Madison children have begun and been sustained over the years.”
