NONPROFIT SPOTLIGHT: Madison Public Schools Foundation
From the org:
Since 2001, the Madison Public Schools Foundation has been raising money and engaging the greater Madison community in support of our public schools. Through programs like Teacher Support Network, we provide our schools and teachers access to resources that make learning easier and enjoyable for students. We advocate on their behalf for more school funding – because quality public education is a right. And we connect our community to schools, through things like our Adopt-a-School program, making it easy for individuals and organizations to get involved and help students.
Increasingly, however, our role is to engage the community, to motivate and inspire them to… Stand up. Speak Up. Champion K12 public education. Over the last 20 years, Wisconsin has fallen from 11th in the nation in per-pupil funding to 25th, and we are near the bottom in the U.S. for per-pupil special education funding. Compared to neighboring states, Wisconsin has invested less in our schools. And every year, MMSD is paying more of its budget dollars to voucher schools.
Right now, we are calling the community to action! Because we are in another superintendent transition. Because the State of Wisconsin has disinvested in K12 for three decades. Because all our kids deserve better. We are always here to partner and determine how contributions can have the greatest impact. And we’re here to help you find the words, the best path, or the right connection to advocate. Sitting on the sidelines is no longer an option for any of us. Come together, join us – let’s be a place where everyone steps up for Madison’s public schools.
