The Ann Arbor Public Schools Educational Foundation is a non-profit organization separate from the Ann Arbor Public Schools that coordinates private giving to public schools in Ann Arbor. Linh Song is the Executive Director.

Our state funding model for public schools has changed, which jeopardizes excellence in schools and compromises the standards Ann Arbor expects.

The AAPSEF raises private funds through events and contributions and offers large program support and grants to teachers.
