FOUNDATION FOR SPRINGFIELD PUBLIC SCHOOLS
BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN FUNDING AND LEARNING
Welcome to the Foundation for Springfield Public Schools, where we work to promote educational excellence for every child by raising, managing, and distributing private investment to benefit the students of Springfield Public Schools. With our community partners, we help bridge the gap between what schools need and what they can afford.
