Who We Are
The Grosse Pointe Foundation for Public Education (GPFPE)is a non-profit organization with the mission of funding extraordinary educational opportunities for the students of the Grosse Pointe Public School System (GPPSS).
Since 2007, the GPFPE has provided close to $3.5 million in funding to the GPPSS, supporting a diverse roster of programs and projects at every school and every grade level across the district.
The GPFPE delivers funding to the GPPSS twice a year through our unrestricted grant program, which allows educators, students and parents to apply for grants to support academic programs, instructional materials, or enrichment projects that include but are not limited to the following: Curriculum Initiatives and Supplements, Learning Resources, Research Projects, Pilot Programs, Academic Enrichment, Extracurricular, Co-curricular Projects, and Staff Development.
The GPFPE board of directors consists of 17 volunteer community members, including former educators, business and community leaders, parents and alumni.
