    Partner with Richmond Public Schools!

    Thank you for your interest in supporting Richmond Public Schools! We strongly believe that we will only be successful through deep partnerships with families and the community. This is why our 2018-2023 Strategic Plan, Dreams4RPS, was carefully crafted based on direct feedback from more than 170 public meetings throughout the community.

    As part of the RPS Office of Engagement, the Department of Community Partnerships strives to leverage partner support by serving as a doorway for organizations and individuals interested in helping us make Dreams4RPS a reality for our students.

    There are a number of ways to engage with us - here’s how to get started:

    If you are interested in supporting our ongoing response to COVID-19, please consider Donating to our COVID-19 Response Fund and/or Volunteering to support our ongoing food distribution efforts taking place throughout the summer. Most volunteer shifts take place Monday through Friday from 9:00am-12:30pm unless otherwise noted.

  • Donate Items, Space, Finances

    Support RPS is anyway you'd like - donations of items, space, time, or money are always helpful and appreciated. Somewhere for our young leaders of the Student Advisory Council to hold their monthly meetings, helping stock up our teacher school supply store, or larger services your business could provide are some examples, just to name a few.
