New foundation asks Durham residents to raise money for public schools, The 9th Street Journal
On the first official day of their existence, I met with three representatives of the Durham Public Schools Foundation.
The Durham Public Schools (DPS) Foundation in their own words is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that unites our Durham Public School communities, public- and private- sector resources and community leaders around strategies to strengthen our Durham Public Schools.
DPS Foundation Launches at the DPS Convocation
The state isn’t providing enough money for schools, so business and community leaders say it’s time for the community to pitch in.
They have started a foundation to raise money to support the public schools.
The new Durham Public Schools Foundation, which launched during August’s convocation, lets residents send tax-deductible donations to support the school system. Foundation leaders say the money could help schools pay for expenses the state’s funds cannot cover, such as student field trips or professional development for teachers.
The DPS Foundation launched on August 22, 2018 at a convocation with 4,000 DPS educators, staff and public schools supporters!
