The Radford City Public Schools’ Partners for Excellence Foundation Inc., is a 501(c)(3), non-profit, organization that has been established to promote academics, arts, and athletics within the school division. As most are aware, state and federal funding for capital projects has greatly diminished in recent years, leaving school divisions with little-to-no funding for neither facility maintenance / improvements, nor funding for projects to advance the learning experiences of our children. Therefore, the subject foundation seeks to fill this void.
The Partners for Excellence Foundation will work diligently with other supporting organizations, such as the Radford High School Foundation, the Band Boosters, and the Athletic Boosters, to maximize efforts in supporting the advancement in opportunities for all students in the division.
I would like to encourage everyone to visit the Public Education Foundation page on the Radford City Public Schools' website to learn more about the projects that are currently being undertaken, and to learn how you may contribute.
It is an honor and privilege to serve as Chairman of the Partners for Excellence Foundation. With your assistance and teamwork, we can continue the tradition of excellence in Radford City Schools.
