  • Department Mission

    Align strategic efforts, innovative thinking and business/philanthropic/
    community resources to ensure that every PPS student has the opportunity to thrive and to graduate with a sense of self, prepared for success in life, work and study.

    Core Function

    The Strategic Partnerships Department's core function is to create, coordinate and facilitate public, private and philanthropic partnerships that foster equitable opportunities for students.

    As the bridge between PPS and the philanthropic and corporate communities, the department assists these entities to collaboratively address the pressing issues faced by the District and advance high-impact involvement (and investments) to create meaningful transformation of our PK-12 system. The department's specific objectives are to:

    1. Build PPS' Generosity Network.

    2. Steward PPS' Strategic Investments, Partnerships and High-Impact Volunteerism.

    3. Build a Culture of Philanthropy at PPS.
