Our Mission

Music education enriches lives and produces creative and confident students. Stubbs’ Educational Foundation empowers students to dream bigger by excelling in the arts, achieving their academic and social goals. In collaboration with community partners, SEF takes an uncompromising approach to excellence in the arts. The SEF community is paying it forward with the amazing gift of music for individuals that otherwise would not have this opportunity. Music education and academic scholarships are need and talent based, providing the foundation of music enrichment that changes lives and helps to create future leaders.

Thank You to Our Providers & Partners

SEF has done amazing things for this community in regards to music education and music appreciation
John Dailey, Leon County Commissioner
Stubbs’ Educational Foundation is changing the lives of students in Tallahassee and the Big Bend Region through music education. Through its efforts, this community is being enriched musically. 20% of kids learn to play music and 70% of adults wish they had. Stubbs’ Educational Foundation is making sure that even more kids experience the joy of music.

I agree that music makes you smarter. Sef has provided a great service to our community by providing music education through 679 scholarships to children in the past 19 years. I am glad to have had the opportunity to help.
