Give the gift of college.

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


IDEA embarked upon a national expansion plan in 2017...

with the goal to raise more than $226 million dollars by 2022 to serve 100,000 students. With your support, we plan to meet and exceed this goal by 2022.


Since 2000, IDEA Public Schools has transformed the lives of thousands of students by preparing them for college and citizenship.

For the past thirteen years, 100% of our graduating seniors have been accepted to college, proving that poverty, ethnicity, and race are not determining factors of a student’s success.

IDEA PUBLIC SCHOOLS IS A TUITION FREE, PUBLIC CHARTER SCHOOL – OPEN TO ALL STUDENTS. Yet, even though we are a public school, IDEA receives less funding overall from state and local sources in comparison to traditional public schools, and only a small amount of funding for facilities.

SINCE OUR FOUNDING IN 2000a number of federal grants, foundation grants, corporate gifts, and individual contributions have helped IDEA close this funding gap. We have put this money to good use – closing the opportunity gap for our students and propelling them to new heights of achievement.

Your gift, of any amount, can help.

It will fund educational programs or bridge the college funding gap for our students. Your generosity can help our students matriculate to the college of their choice, not just the most affordable colleges, and go on to lead rewarding lives as productive members of their communities.
