TPS Foundation Names New Executive Director

Special to The Truth

The Toledo Public Schools Foundation has named Erica Halada as its new executive director. She will be responsible for directing a comprehensive fundraising program for the Foundation, manage its ongoing charitable activities, and engage with community and school leaders to raise the profile of the Foundation in the Toledo community.

Halada brings seven years of diverse fundraising experience to the position – most recently with ProMedica Health System’s Philanthropy Division as executive director of the Bay Park Hospital Foundation. She previously was a development officer at United Way of Greater Toledo. 

She was one of the founders of the Emerging Leaders program at United Way and a member of the Leadership Toledo Class of 2016.  She is a member of EPIC and the Association of Fundraising Professionals, and serves as a board of trustee with Leadership Toledo.  Halada holds a Bachelor of Science in Communication and Business from Eastern Michigan University.

The TPS Foundation has operated for more than 25 years as a 501©(3) charitable organization that provides private funding for scholarships as well as programs that enhance teaching and learning in TPS schools.

Since January, a number of community, business and school leaders have been working to expand the vision of the organization. Focus areas include student scholarships, teacher grants, expanding support to enroll more children in pre-K education and providing assistance to individual schools for enrichment and capital projects.

Halada reports to the Foundation board of directors and coordinates both development and charitable activities with TPS Superintendent Romules Durant, EdD, and his administrative staff.
