Our Story

The Danville Public Schools Education Foundation (DPSEF) is a 501 (c) 3 organization that was founded in 2002 to develop alternative financial resources for Danville Public Schools (DPS) and to support educational activities for DPS students and professional development for teachers and staff.

 

Our vision is A Community Invested in Education and Danville Public Schools. We raise awareness, financial, and in-kind support for public education across all sectors of our community. We direct that support to learning and teaching activities not fully supported by tax dollars or expected to be delivered directly by DPS.
