Rex Sinquefield and his wife, Dr. Jeanne Sinquefield, recognize the power of education. Missouri schools are in desperate need of education-reform policies that put kids first. All children in our state, regardless of socioeconomic background, deserve access to high-quality educational options. Kids should not be stuck in failed school districts. Along with thousands of other Missourians, the Sinquefields support education policies that include open enrollment, charter school expansion, and teacher-tenure reform. School districts and school leaders should be accountable for students’ performance and educational well-being.
At the heart of the Sinquefields’ foundation is a desire to improve educational opportunities, ensuring that each child gets the support needed to be successful. Here are a few programs supported by the Sinquefield Charitable Foundation:
Today and Tommorrow Educational Foundation
The Today and Tomorrow Educational Foundation (TTEF), a nearly 20-year-old organization, provides needs-based tuition assistance scholarships to economically disadvantaged children throughout the Archdiocese of St. Louis. TTEF funds and administers scholarships to allow disadvantaged families to send their children to their school of choice.
Children’s Education Alliance of Missouri
The Children’s Education Alliance of Missouri supports individualized learning opportunities for all children through issue resolution, community education, and civic engagement. One of the ways CEAM does this is by encouraging every Missourian to get involved – including business and civic leaders — because success in improving our educational system depends on every Missourian . . . and because every Missourian depends on that success for a brighter future.
Special Learning Center
The Special Learning Center provides comprehensive, early intervention services for children with disabilities and developmental delays. For 15 years, the Sinquefields have been proud sponsors of an annual event benefiting the Special Learning Center in Jefferson City, Missouri.
