Our Mission

The mission of the Putnam City Schools Foundation is to enhance and enrich educational opportunities in Putnam City Schools.

Established in 1987, the Putnam City Schools Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization managed by a board of trustees and comprised of involved patrons in the district, as well as, staff members Caroline Gist and Jennifer Seal.  The mission of the Putnam City Schools Foundation is to enhance and enrich educational opportunities in the Putnam City Schools.  The Foundation develops relationships with local businesses, foundations, and individuals in order to garner resources and energies necessary to address pressing needs of Putnam City schools.

The Foundation supports many district activities, including:  Early Birds, ESL for Immigrant Parents Classes, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), Golden Apple Awards, Teacher/Excellent Educator of the Year Awards, Outstanding Support Staff Awards, Community Fund, and the Wall of Fame Celebration. 

The Putnam City school district was established over 100 years ago.  It provides high quality education for students in preschool through high school.  The district, one of the largest in the state, has 19,000-plus students attending 18 elementary schools, five middle schools, three high schools, and one alternative school.

Putnam City Schools represent the greatest opportunity to enhance children's lives and help them gain the skills they need to compete in a global economy. The Foundation brings alumni, parents, friends, corporations, and other foundations together to create opportunities that privately support continuing excellence in Putnam City Schools--helping every student shine.
