Fundraising and Events

The St. Joseph Public Schools Foundation is an academic booster club that funds educational initiatives to bridge the deficit gap between available funding and student/teacher needs.

Grants and Scholarships

SJPSF awards student scholarships as well as annual grants directly to teachers to use in their classrooms to fund projects, purchases, and initiatives that are not covered by the district general fund.


The St. Joseph Public Schools Foundation works closely with administrators, teachers, students and parents to identify and fund projects that enrich the educational environment for our teachers and students.

What We Provide

The St. Joseph Public Schools have a long history, having celebrated its
175th birthday in 2013. The St. Joseph Public Schools Foundation has
been part of that history since 1996. Changes in school funding that
occurred in Michigan in 1993 with the passage of proposition A
necessitated the need to find supplemental funding for school districts
throughout Michigan. The contents of this report describe how the
SJPS Foundation fills that need, with the support of our donors, for the
St. Joseph Public Schools.
