Team

The Advancement Team’s mission is to build a strong and diverse portolio of support that is sufficient to fund IDEA Public Schools’ growth plans for the future.


This will entail establishing long-term, mutually beneficial relationships with a wide range of national education leaders, government agencies and elected officials, private and public foundations, community leaders and individual donors.

We encourage you to lean more and IDEA’s mission and hope that you will be inspired to support our efforts through financial investment in our students and educational programs as well as active engagement in our volunteer opportunities.
