Albany Public Schools Foundation

Press & Media

The mission of the Foundation is to generate and distribute resources that enrich and enhance education opportunities for all students, encourage teachers to implement innovative educational programs, and award scholarships to Albany Public School District students. The Foundation’s Board of Directors recognize that this is best accomplished by a combined commitment and collaboration with the school district, the school board, businesses, individuals, and other organizations in the community.

The Albany Public Schools Foundation has won MOM Magazine’s 2024 Community Impact Award!

“The MOM Magazine Community Impact Award honors one nonprofit organization, in each community where MOM Magazine is published, that positively impacts the lives of moms and children. Past winners include the Salem Kroc Center, ABC House of Albany, Eugene Family YMCA, and many others. The awarded organization receives a free, year-long advertising schedule in MOM Magazine to promote their programs and cause, as well as social media promotion.”
