The Need for an Educational Foundation

York Public Schools have always had a reputation for outstanding education. However, practical limits on federal, state, and local funding have affected the school system’s ability to support programs outside of the basic core curriculum.

Excellence in public education is essential to the economic and social well-being of the community. Our foundation raises private funds for public education to enrich the educational experience for all our children. We are passionately committed to provide all students with every opportunity to succeed.
