Like many of you, we have worked hard to make our dreams a reality. Looking back on our careers, we realize we could not have achieved the success we have without quality teachers, after school programs, and scholarships. These were significant opportunities for us and feel every child deserves the same.
While Toledo Public Schools has a long history of successfully challenging students to learn and grow, crucial educational programming and enrichment activities that are integral in students success aren’t guaranteed anymore. Cuts in public education funding and the local property tax cap create challenges that cannot be resolved with traditional funding.
The Toledo Public School Foundation is actively reaching out to the community to gain the financial support for critical programs now and for the future. We intend to bring resources into the district so that ALL Toledo Public School children have the tools they need to succeed. We invest in real children, real dreams and real opportunities.
The Foundation’s board of directors has committed to raising $2.2 million by the end of fiscal year 2020 to fund these very important initiatives. We know that this bold 20-20 Plan demands a high level of engagement and support from throughout the community – and that’s where you come in.
We are hoping that you will consider making a generous donation to the TPS Foundation as a way for you to show how important Toledo Public Schools is to you and your commitment to quality public education.
