DMPS Foundation Dinner

Thursday, November 2, 2023

The Des Moines Public Schools Foundation Board and Des Moines School Board hosted the first annualĀ DMPS Foundation Dinner on Thursday, November 2nd.

The evening event included toasts to our school district, a warm welcome for our new DMPS superintendent, Dr. Ian Roberts, and, most importantly, the opportunity to raise much needed financial support for the students of Des Moines Public Schools.

The need for private support for our public schools has never been greater. Des Moines is proud to have a rich 100-year legacy of providing high quality, community-based education to the students in our capital city. Join us in uplifting and continuing our tradition of educational opportunity and excellence for all children in Des Moines.
