Stamford Public Education Foundation will receive $250,000 to deliver children’s literacy programming

Thanks to the advocacy of Senator Richard Blumenthal and Senator Chris Murphy, SPEF - Stamford Public Education Foundation will receive a $250,000 earmark to deliver children’s literacy programming. SPEF is partnering with Reading Is Fundamental (RIF) to provide Stamford educators, families, and students with books and literacy resources to empower and inspire a love of reading.

Thank you to our federal delegation for their tireless advocacy in Washington D.C., for our community and to SPEF CEO Lindsay Wyman, RIF CEO and President Alicia Levi, and Stamford Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Tamu Lucero for being champions for our students and leading this effort.

I look forward to working with all of these community partners to roll out this initiative and ensure Stamford students have access to quality literacy resources and educational programming.
