The Foundation for Vancouver Public Schools (FVPS) is an independent, 501(c)3 non-profit corporation established in 1988 to support students across all 37 schools in the Vancouver Public Schools (the District) through generous donations from school employees, parents, students, community members and businesses. FVPS and the District partner closely to ensure students and families have basic needs, health and social service referrals, enrichment activities and family engagement opportunities, and other resources through on-site and mobile Family Community Resource Centers.

FVPS seeks a highly motivated, full-time Executive Director (ED) who will serve as the public face of the Foundation, as a strategic partner with the Foundation’s board of directors and the District’s senior leadership, and as the Foundation’s principal fundraiser.
