Thank you for your interest in the Springdale Public Schools Education Foundation grants program. SPSEF grants are designed to provide funding for projects that increase learning opportunities for students and reward the creative initiative of teachers.
SPSEF grants are funded by generous contributions of the Springdale Public Schools employees who elect to support the Foundation via a district payroll deduction, donations from private individuals, and contributions from corporate partners.
SPSEF’s mission is to promote and support excellence in education. One of the ways in which we accomplish this is by attracting private and philanthropic funds to sustain and expand educational programs that fall outside the Springdale Public Schools normal operating budget.
