Leadership gift from Sinquefields helps TTEF raise $14 million

The Today and Tomorrow Educational Foundation (TTEF) in St. Louis reported at the beginning of November that in the seven years since receiving their first annual leadership gift of $500,000 from Dr. Jeanne and Rex Sinquefield, the organization has leveraged that donation to raise $14 million in annual donations, and given away more than $30 million to assist more than 4,200 students in the region.

TTEF provides financial assistance so that children from economically disadvantaged families within the St. Louis region can get a quality education. “Philanthropists and educational choice advocates Rex and Jeanne Sinquefield’s early investment in the Help for Today, Hope for Tomorrow scholarship fund inspired many other St. Louis civic leaders to contribute,” said Sharon Gerken, the Foundation’s executive director. “Because of their generosity, we are now preparing far more students from disadvantaged homes to achieve their educational potential and lead full and successful lives.”
