The Grand Rapids Student Advancement Foundation is the strategic fundraising partner of Grand Rapids Public Schools. We link community resources with the needs of GRPS for the benefit of its students, not just by raising money but also by identifying and strengthening partnerships and opportunities to engage the community in our efforts.
We believe that all students deserve every opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. Since 2003, the Foundation has raised and granted over $20 million through our fundraising and friendraising efforts.
