Stamford Public Education Foundation
The Stamford Public Education Foundation's mission is to support the students and teachers in Stamford's Public Schools through community collaboration and philanthropy.At the elementary level, the foundation supports literacy initiatives and at the middle and high school levels our focus is on college and career readiness.
Did you know? SPEF’s programs are available to all 15,800 Stamford Public School students:
- 49% of Stamford students qualify for free or reduced lunch program. (A family of 4 qualifying for free lunch earns less than $23,850; a family of 4 qualifying for reduced price lunch earns less than $44,123.)
- 68% of students are minority; 73 languages are spoken at home.
Without the collaboration of corporations, private foundations, and individuals, we could not provide all the life-changing service we offer to the children of Stamford.
