APS Education Foundation
The APS Education Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization established for promoting private support of the district and its students. In partnership with Albuquerque Public Schools, we promote and garner financial and in-kind resources to provide students with the opportunity to succeed. We also mobilize resources and develop community partnerships to support excellence in APS.

We’ve got nearly 90,000 students in APS, and our mission is to help them graduate with a well-rounded, top-notch education that creates a lifetime love of learning. We do this in a variety of different ways, all of which center on help from our community, alumni and friends. We raise and manage funds for strategic investment to support student success and achievement, with a focus on aligning these resources toward academic success. With the help of the Join-A-School program, we also mobilize resources and develop community partnerships to help our kids and teachers.
Toward our goal of academic success, the Foundation has created a variety of initiatives that will supplement four major programs in need of your help: Fine Arts, Middle/High School Activities, Literacy and Science/Technology/Engineering/Math. The most public of these efforts is our Horizon Campaign, which has raised about $800,000 in cash, in-kind donations and pledges.
