The Ypsilanti Community Schools Foundation (YCSF) was officially established as a non-profit in January 2007. The mission of the foundation is to advance the promise of success for all students through the generation and distribution of resources to be used to enrich teaching, inspire learning, promote excellence in education, and reward dedication to these tenets through grants and scholarships.

To achieve our mission, the foundation is committed to four objectives:

  • The recognition of students who work to their highest potential. 
  • The recognition of faculty for exemplary, innovative teaching.
  • The engagement of Ypsilanti Community Schools' administrators and staff as partners in this mission.
  • The engagement of community partners for help in achieving this mission.
