Founded in 1996, the mission of the Stamford Public Education Foundation (SPEF) is to deliver educational programs and resources that elevate student, educator, and parent success by bridging the gap between needs in the Stamford Public Schools and resources in our community. The Foundation’s vision is that each and every student in the Stamford Public Schools will graduate high school prepared and inspired to be a productive member of society.

Volunteers play a critical role! SPEF has built a strong reputation for delivering programs and resources that connect college, corporate and community volunteers with Stamford Public School students. While SPEF offers services for all students, it focuses on providing educational resources and support to children at the low end of the achievement gap.
