Allendale Public Schools Foundation


The Allendale Public Schools Foundation is an endowed fund within the Allendale Community Foundation, which is administered through the Grand Haven Area Community Foundation.


The APS Foundation was established in 2005 as an endowed fund within the Allendale Community Foundation. Its purpose is to provide funding to benefit the programs, activities, and functions of the Allendale Public School District and its students.

The Foundation offers an opportunity for people who are passionate about education and our community's children to come forward and make a real difference right now and for years.

The Allendale Public Schools Foundation is overseen by a Fund Advisory Committee, comprised of seven members including the APS chief financial officer, one building administrator, one member of the Board of Education, a parent representative, and a community representative  


To promote positive change by building a financial foundation to support academic programs and scholarships for students and alumni of Allendale Public Schools.


To raise sufficient funds so we can dispense grants and scholarships from the interest of those funds. 

We expect to grow our endowed fund, using the net investment return to fund student scholarships and specific programs within our schools that currently lack sufficient funding.


You can contribute to the APS Foundation using our simple donation form or make an online donation through the Grand Haven Area Community Foundation website. Please specify Allendale Public Schools Foundation as the fund of your choice. (At the bottom of the form use "Designation"  menu to select "Other" then type in APS Foundation.) 

All donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law.
