The staff and board of the Stamford Public Education Foundation are united by these core values:

  • We believe all students have the right to benefit equally from a quality public education.
  • We believe SPEF has a responsibility to eliminate barriers that hinder students’ success.
  • We believe SPEF has strategic relationships and unique insight to support students in their pursuit of happiness.

With this in mind, we have created the Stamford Voices Shine initiative,
in which we ask friends of SPEF:

What does equity in education, here in Stamford, mean to you?

SPEF CEO Lindsay led off the conversation, with others in our community sharing their insights and perspectives:
