Donate To The Shirley Proctor Puller Foundation

SPPF works directly with students in two academic enrichment programs, the SPPF M.A.S.T.R. Kids® After-School Program and the SPPF M.A.S.T.R. Kids® Summer Camp. Both these programs are built round a “literacy plus STEAM” curriculum. Students build core skills in English and Math and practice these skills in fun and engaging activities, field trips and interesting exchanges with community leaders.

Encourage Them
to Play

Outdoor play, dance and yoga are among the most highly rated student activities!  Active play is critically important to the long term health and development of children.  It promotes cognitive and social, emotional learning as well as physical growth.  Help our students stay active with your donations!

Everyone’s favorite outdoor play seems to involve some sort of ball – four square, volleyball, soccer, basketball, tennis, etc.  Use the link below to select balls and other fun play things to donate.
