The mission of the Springdale Public Schools Education Foundation is to promote the highest quality of education in the Springdale Public Schools by supporting the teaching process, providing additional educational resources, and engaging a broad base of community support.
One way SPSEF accomplishes our mission is by attracting private and philanthropic funds in order to expand educational programs that fall outside the Springdale Public Schools normal operating budget. In 2013 the Foundation partnered with Tyson Foods Inc., Truity Credit Union and Cox Communications to support the Foundation’s grant program. Since that time, SPSEF has provided more than $250,000 in funding for innovative grants that impact classrooms all across the district.
SPSEF also works with donors to create scholarships that will help Springdale students attend college. The Foundation currently manages 23 individual funds that award scholarships to Springdale Public Schools graduating seniors. Since 2012, Springdale graduates have been awarded more than $500,000 in Foundation scholarships. Interested parties may contact the Foundation for details on creating a new scholarship or transferring administration of an existing scholarship fund.
Additionally, the Springdale Schools Alumni Association allows alumni to maintain ties to Springdale Schools through fellowship, fundraising and scholarship opportunities.
