Our approach is simple: invest heavily in four key areas to bring rapid change and measurable results.
Develop the nation’s best public education system.
The NPEF brings policymakers, private and philanthropic communities, parents, educators, the faith community, and neighborhood leaders together to chart a community-driven vision for education.
Invest in innovation.
The Foundation’s fundraising efforts center around raising private funding for public school excellence. Read more about how we are making it all possible with the Innovation Fund.
Grow the capacity of the district.
The Foundation brings outside expertise and training to the district. We also partner with schools to provide parents with better data and information so they can make the right school choices for their children.
Forge deep, collaborative partnerships.
Systemic change happens only when everyone has a seat at the table. The NPEF facilitates knowledge sharing, collaboration among traditional zoned schools and charter schools, and aligning the interests of the business and philanthropic communities with the needs of MNPS.
NPEF helps our schools overcome these challenges.
