We link community resources with the needs of our city’s students, not just by raising money, but also by identifying and strengthening partnerships and opportunities to engage the community in our efforts.

Believing all students deserve the chance to succeed, the Student Advancement Foundation has raised almost $8 million since 1993 to provide Grand Rapids Public Schools students the educational tools and enrichment experiences they need to learn.

Watch how the Grand Rapids Student Advancement Foundation partners with Grand Rapids Public Schools to help all of our students learn, develop, and thrive.
