MISSION & VISION
Since its inception in 1987, the Aurora Public Schools Foundation has served to foster support of education within the Aurora Public School District by bringing together teachers, business-people, parents, alumni and community leaders.
Our Vision: Possibility becomes reality for every student.
Our Mission: Cultivate community investment to enrich student opportunity.
Strategic Objectives: The Aurora Public Schools Foundation advances private, non-profit, public and philanthropic partnerships to develop and leverage resources for projects and programs that drive innovation and excellence for nearly 40,000 students, 5,000 teachers and staff, and 64 schools.
We fulfill our mission by:
• Creating a college-bound culture throughout APS through the support of College and Career Centers that provide high school students with critical information on post secondary options, and tools to help them find and pursue their goals after graduation;
• Facilitating direct philanthropic support to classrooms, schools and programs across the district; and
• Stewarding a robust student scholarship program created through the generosity of individuals, families and organizations throughout our community.
We are a proud member of the Colorado School Foundation Association.
