The Parsons Blewett Memorial Fund has a two-fold mission: to assist educators in the St. Louis Public School system with financial support for educational and professional development and to aid St. Louis Public School District (SLPS) educators who face dire financial need due to a health or personal crisis.

The Fund reflects the generosity and the concern of its founder, Dr. Ben Blewett who, in the early 20th century, was a visionary educator and served as the Superintendent of the St. Louis Public School system. For more on the history of the fund, click here.

Today, the Parsons Blewett Memorial Fund has helped thousands of educators advance their training and have assisted hundreds of active and retired educators in extreme financial need.
