Our mission is to enhance the experience of students in Sanford's Schools and Regional Technical Center
by expanding opportunities beyond those provided through public funding.
Who We Are
The Legacy Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization created to allow individuals and corporations with a means to provide tax-deductible financial and in-kind support to the Sanford Schools.
The Legacy Foundation is collaborating with the Sanford Red and White Foundation, SHS Music Boosters and the Sanford Alumni Association. In addition, the Legacy Foundation is partnering with local and regional businesses and community leaders throughout Sanford.
Many of these local and regional businesses and community leaders come from a variety of professional and technical fields including financial institutions, law firms, healthcare, engineering firms, service industries, Chamber of Commerce, insurance agencies, automotive, horticulture and human resources.
“The Legacy Foundation acts as a conduit for donations from area businesses, nonprofits and personal donations, such as estate gifts from folks who want to leave a local legacy.”

What We Do
The Sanford Schools Legacy Foundation was founded on the mission to raise private funding to supplement portions of the state-funded school construction project. With construction complete, we have turned our attention toward helping students of all ages across ALL Sanford schools. The foundation continues to seek corporate and private partners to help empower our educators, invest and inspire our students, and engage our community. With your help, we can do it!
Our Mission is to enhance the experience of students in Sanford’s Schools and Regional Technical Center by expanding opportunities beyond those provided through public funding.
