About Us

About Us

The Stuart Foundation is dedicated to improving life outcomes for young people through education. We work to ensure that education systems in California and Washington provide opportunities for students to learn, achieve and thrive.

Our guiding principle, or North Star, is an education system that values the Whole Child by strengthening the relationships between students, educators, families and communities. We seek to create systems that strengthen the full spectrum of a child’s experiences from the classroom to the playground to the kitchen table.

As a result, students will have greater opportunities to be self-reliant, succeed in education and careers, and engage meaningfully in their communities.


Anchoring our work is our commitment to being bold, making an impact, acting with integrity, being accountable, pursuing excellence, and being respectful.
