Our Mission

The Albert J. Speh and Claire R. Speh Foundation bases its mission on the Legacy Statement created in 1996 by Al Speh. The Legacy Statement calls the Speh Family Foundation to work for the benefit of Chicago's youth, and in doing so, create a
better society.

The Foundation's mission, therefore, is to help the youth of the Chicago metropolitan area reach their potential and become positive contributing members of their communities. The Foundation aims to assist youth to achieve their potential by cultivating education opportunities, strengthening family resources, supporting safe places and activities, and challenging youth leaders.
