Mission & History

Who We Are

For 100 years, the Grosse Pointe Public School System has benefited from a sturdy local tax base, state financial support, and ample federal funding, making our school district the envy of our peers nationwide and the crown jewel in one of the healthiest and robust communities in the state. Yet the future is not what it used to be.

Grosse Pointe Alumni & Friends was founded to be a leading pioneer of a mission we all share: ensuring the excellence and viability of our public school system, not only in the near term, but in perpetuity. Our vision is to partner with like-minded and similarly motivated foundations, parents, community members, alumni, students, volunteers, business owners, board members, government officials, school employees, and residents of all Grosse Pointes to unite in our pride and passion for the longevity of our schools. 

Our founding purpose is to create an alumni association and an endowment, the appropriately named “Generations Endowment Fund,” that invests in impactful, innovative programs and people that will deliver continued educational excellence for years and generations to come.

Grosse Pointe Alumni & Friends is an independent 501(c)(3) organization, a volunteer-led, mission-driven association unaffiliated with—but committed to supporting—the Grosse Pointe Public School System.
