Welcome! As executive director of the Special Education Foundation, every day I’m amazed at how impactful our organization is in improving the lives of the students and teachers we serve. A sampling of the services we provide include college scholarships, summer camperships, mini-grants to teachers to improve success in their classrooms and beyond, leadership training programs for future student leaders, adaptive equipment, hearing aids, and emergency funds for families and students who face critical and unexpected expenses. We help fill the gaps that St. Louis County tax dollars cannot.

Please explore our site to learn more about how the Foundation supports these programs for all children served by the Special School District of St. Louis County. The Foundation remains committed to helping children achieve their highest potential and to ensuring that opportunities are available and accessible to children and youth with disabilities.

The Foundation’s accomplishments are made possible by a passionate and hard-working board of directors and staff, and the many donors and volunteers who share our mission. We extend sincere appreciation for the generosity of area corporations, foundations and individuals who work with us to create a community that aspires for success and independence for all citizens.
