All of New York City’s 1.1 million public school students deserve a world-class education.
To help make this a reality, The Fund for Public Schools builds public-private partnerships to strengthen our schools and create opportunities for students to achieve. The Fund secures funding for critical system-wide education initiatives, develops partnerships that support our city's schools, and encourages broad public engagement both in our schools and in the lives of our students.
Private investment raised by The Fund enables the DOE to implement the most promising new ideas, while preserving public dollars for the day-to-day work of schools. Funds directly benefit students in Pre-K through 12th grade programs across all five boroughs of New York City, where more than 180 languages are spoken and 78 percent of students qualify for free or reduced lunch.
1.1 million students. 1.1 million futures. 1.1 million reasons to support our public schools.
