"People have the inherent ability to change themselves and their local and global communities." —Stanley Foundation's Core Values
Through Community Partnerships, the foundation acts locally while thinking globally. We promote global education and serve the community, being valued as a "good neighbor" in Muscatine, the surrounding area, and Iowa in general.
For projects in and near our hometown of Muscatine, Iowa, contact Jill Goldesberry.
The Earth Awareness Portable Classroom offers a unique experience to all who step inside it. Foundation staff give presentations in Iowa and the immediate Quad Cities area. These offer students the chance to experience geography in a new way, focusing on physical aspects of each continent as well as including genteral math skills.
