Richfield Public Schools Foundation

About Us

Partnering with the Richfield Public Schools to support and promote excellence and innovation that enhances the educational experience for students and staff


Richfield Foundation was organized in 1989 by a group of concerned Richfield citizens who felt there was a need for local support of activities and organizations that contribute to the well-being of Richfield and its citizens. The Richfield Foundation has made numerous grants in support of organizations serving the Richfield community, including grants to Cornerstone, Family and Children's Services, Fraser Community Services, Hampton Place After School Center, St. David's Child Development and Family Services, Storefront/Youth Action, VEAP, and YouthNet.

In 1997, the Richfield Foundation created the Richfield Public Schools Dedicated Fund to focus attention on donations to public school programs. The Richfield Public Schools Dedicated Fund developed many of the principles and programs that continue today such as Mini-Grants (Grants) and the Golden Helmet (Rave Review).

In 2007, the Dedicated Fund committee formed the Richfield Public Schools (RPS) Foundation, an independent nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to its commitment to the public school programs. From 2007 through 2014, the RPS Foundation has awarded over $97,000 in grants and program subsidies to support a variety of educational enrichment activities within the schools.
