Program Description

Richmond Public Schools Education Foundation is a nonprofit organization that partners with the school district to improve student learning and achievement in preparation for success in college, career, and community.

Richmond Public Schools serves over 23,000 students, representing the region's diverse socioeconomic mix. It is comprised of 28 elementary schools, including one charter school, eight middle schools, five comprehensive high schools and three specialty schools. Although RPS has much to celebrate, it is faced with increased demand and diminishing resources. Through fundraising efforts and collaborations, the Richmond Public Schools Education Foundation seeks private funding for needs that do not receive adequate public support.
