DREAM BIG Annual Campaign

DREAM BIG has been the moniker of the QPS Foundation’s major gifts campaign for a number of years. Now, we continue the tradition through our annual campaign to garner support from our community and raise funds for public education.

This year’s goal: $150,000

Tax-based funding continues to be unpredictable, resulting in gaps in the budget of the Quincy Public Schools.

The district must continue to balance areas of staffing, maintenance, curriculum, and equipment to do the best it can with what funds are available.


Promoting excellence through improved quality of education is our goal.

The pillars of the Foundation are based on areas of need that have the potential to make a significant impact on overall quality of public education in Quincy:

Curriculum  •  Technology  •  Fine Arts  •  Athletics

and Endowment

We involve both the local community and QHS alumni in our efforts, because we believe the difference between a good school system and a great school system is private support.
