Thanks to the generous support of MSTF’s donors, the Missouri State Teachers Foundation was able to help educators at Augusta Elementary recover from a fire that destroyed their Library earlier that year through the HOPE Initiative. Teachers shared stories of how despite the fire being contained to the Library section of the school, smoke damage affected every part of the building. The HOPE Initiative was designed to help educators replace items they had personally purchased for teaching that were ruined in a disaster. MSTF was able to provide funds to help 13 educators in Augusta.
No one knows when a disaster will strike. The Missouri State Teachers Foundation depends on generous gifts from donors to make sure we are ready to step in and help teachers recover when a disaster affects their school community. Please consider making a fully tax-deductible gift to the Missouri State Teachers Foundation and help bring HOPE to a teacher in need. Click here to donate to MSTF.
