In 2002, education, business, government and civic leaders were inspired by the need to join forces in supporting public education and preparing students for a successful life after high school. They came together to form a strong and vibrant nonprofit organization: AchieveMpls.
As the nonprofit partner of the Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS), AchieveMpls serves as a bridge between MPS and our broader community – including businesses, foundations, nonprofits, government agencies and individuals – providing information and opportunities to engage as funders, volunteers, employers, advocates and advisers.
We manage career and college readiness programs, raise financial resources for strategic MPS initiatives, manage scholarship and school funds and engage our community in supporting and advocating for public education. We believe that helping our youth succeed is the best investment we can make in our city. Student success generates rich rewards in a more active and engaged citizenry, a higher skilled workforce for our knowledge-based economy and an increasingly just and compassionate urban community.
We live in a generous community that gives richly of its resources and shares our vision of success for all of our students. We invite you to learn how you can join us in creating a powerful legacy of opportunity, prosperity, fairness and abundance for our students and our city.
