Thank you for taking time to visit the Stafford Education Foundation web site. Since the Foundation’s organization in 1994, it has become an important source of scholarships and resources for Stafford students, alumni, and community members. As you look at the various web pages you will see examples of what some of those benefits are. While the major portions of the donations go to scholarships, there are many examples of other gifts. Generous donors have remembered the Education Foundation in their wills, memorials, and outright giving.
A Board of ten Trustees governs the Foundation. Two members serve from the Stafford Board of Education, one is the sitting Superintendent, and the others are selected from the community by the Foundation and confirmed by the USD #349 Board of Education. The Foundation Board meets several times a year. A professional investment firm, using the investment philosophy of the Board, manages the investments. The philosophy is basically conservative, with some growth stocks included, as well. The holdings of the foundation have produced a good track record.
I invite you to browse our website for more information. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to call at 620-234-5243.
Dr. Mary Jo Taylor
