Our Mission:

The Stafford MSD Education Foundation will increase educational opportunities for SMSD students through grants and scholarships generated by partnerships with educators, parents, community members, businesses, and civic leaders committed to bridging the distance between needs and resources.

The Stafford MSD Education Foundation was founded in 2004 to create a partnership of educators, businesses, community members, parents, and civic leaders to assist in meeting the ever-increasing demands of providing a high-quality education.

The Foundation is a tax-exempt organization established to secure financial support and other resources for Stafford Municipal School District (SMSD) academic programs. Foundation funds support needs within the district that fall outside the scope of the normal operating budget.

Students and teachers benefit from grants and scholarships either funded or orchestrated by the Foundation. Stafford MSD Education Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Gifts and donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.
