Last year, with the help of our generous donors, the QPS Foundation was able to provide nearly $200,000 in support of numerous initiatives throughout the District. Some recent projects include:
• Enhanced curriculum and technology for STEM education
• Consistent support for technology equipment needs
• Funding of social initiatives like the Child & Family Mentor program
• Play-based learning for Kindergarten classrooms across the District
Gifts to the Foundation make a big difference in teachers' classrooms and the newly adapted virtual learning. Your donations help provide grants from the Foundation to fund non-luxury needs to these educators, enabling them to focus on creative and effective teaching.
The Quincy Public Schools Foundation began in 1989 as the Quincy Foundation for Quality Education (QFQE) to aid in the funding of academic program enrichment, quality enhancement, and extended learning opportunities in the Quincy Public Schools.
To better reflect its mission, in 2008, the QFQE became the Quincy Public Schools Foundation. In 2010, the Foundation launched the DREAM BIG campaign with initiatives targeting curriculum, technology, fine arts and athletics programs.
Today, the QPS Foundation continues to fulfill its mission of providing resources for the enrichment of academic programs and other projects throughout the Quincy Public Schools District for our children for generations to come.
QHS Alums are huge fans of the Blue Devils, and want to support education through their Alma Mater and the entire Quincy Public School District.
The battle is on to see which Blue Devil group can raise the most for the QPS Foundation’s annual Dream Big Campaign! The Foundation supports curriculum, technology, athletics, and fine arts to make sure EVERY student has as many opportunities as possible.
Tax dollars only do so much, and your donations, big or small, play a major role in raising the bar for public education in Quincy!
Support your team today, and share your fundraiser on social media to show your Quincy PRIDE! Go Blue!
