Our Mission

The Foundation's mission is to promote excellence by finding creative and innovative projects for the staff and students of Sterling's schools. Foundation monies will allow the Sterling School system to initiate, continue or expand educational projects otherwise left without adequate money to proceed because of budgetary constraints or compelling priorities.

The Foundation is dedicated to the identification and funding of programs and projects that will raise the level of academic achievement of all Sterling public school students. Our goal is to help provide the very best education for students as they prepare for challenges of life.
