Since its inception in 1978, Dade Partners has grown to more than 4,500 entities that have formed thousands of partnerships between their organization and our schools.  Together, these partners continue to share their expertise and provide our schools a multitude of resources.


Dade Partners who are willing to "adopt" a school and allow for maximum flexibility in the ways they give and support they offer are often the most valuable to schools. Establishing what may become a longstanding relationship between a business or organization and school community leads to maximum benefit for all.
