About Us

The Fund for Public Schools (The Fund) is a 501(c)(3) that has consistently and rigorously dedicated itself to supporting New York City’s public schools since 1982. The Fund has secured unprecedented investment from foundations, businesses, and individuals, raising more than $509 million for the city’s 1,800 public schools and 1.1 million students. As a partner to the NYC Department of Education (NYC DOE), The Fund supports some of the most innovative programs in 3K-12 education at the largest school district in the country. Private funding raised through and managed by The Fund enables the NYC DOE to pilot innovative projects; accelerate promising, outcome-driven initiatives for improving student achievement; and respond strategically to emerging needs across the school system.
