CONTRIBUTION GUIDE

 

Partnerships bring different cultures together to create exciting opportunities for the students of Columbus Public Schools. Business partners, higher education institutions, and Columbus Public Schools must work together to create an environment that encourages discovery and success.

 

Community involvement is the cornerstone of success for the experiences for our students. Sponsorship and/or donations will help provide experiences that traditional funding sources may not be able to support. Harnessing the power of a student’s experiences and community resources is at the core of education, business, and community success.
