Case Statement

Generations Endowment

For more than 100 years, the Grosse Pointe Public School System (GPPSS) has been at the heart of our community.  Generations of families have entrusted the education of their children to the GPPSS – with great expectations and great results. However, as we celebrate one century of success, we must also look ahead to support a future that continues to ensure that every child in our district is able to reach their full potential.    

The Grosse Pointe Alumni & Friends Association was founded to secure the excellence and viability of our beloved schools – today, tomorrow and long into the future. The Generations Endowment Fund will provide permanent and predictable funding to support programs and innovations essential to the long-term success of our school system.  By collaborating with school district officials, principals, teachers and PTOs, we will identify the greatest and most urgent areas of need and provide discretionary funds accordingly in the form of an annual district-wide grant. 

The Generations Endowment Fund is a bigger initiative, a bolder endeavor, and an even deeper commitment from everyone. Together, as students, alumni, friends, and family, we will lay a new foundation for educational excellence and create a legacy for generations to come.

The Generations Endowment will be managed by Raymond James, Grosse Pointe.
