Circle of Friends Luncheon

Join Our Circle of Friends!

The Foundation for Madison’s Public Schools’ hosted the Twelfth Annual Circle of Friends Luncheon on Tuesday, May 23, from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. at the Alliant Energy Center. As our largest fundraiser, the Luncheon brought together over 600 public education supporters who helped us invest over $1 million in Madison’s students, educators, and schools in 2016!

Circle of Friends is a celebration of our community’s greatest assets, Madison’s public schools. The Madison Metropolitan School District’s passionate faculty and staff are dedicated to ensuring that every student is ready for college, career, and community. While they have made great strides in achieving this goal, city-wide support is fundamental to guaranteeing every student reaches their full potential.
