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 learn, grow and thrive, the Student Advancement Foundation through its fundraising and friendraising efforts has raised and granted over $20 Million for the benefit of Grand Rapids Public Schools and its students.

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