About Us

Special Education Enrichment Development Foundation (SEED) was developed by a small group of parents in 2006, after recognizing the need for a foundation to augment special educational services for children and families in Lafayette, California. 
 
With the collaborative efforts of its diverse parent population – stemming from Early Intervention, Lafayette’s four elementary schools, Stanley Middle School and members of the Lafayette, California, community – SEED quickly grew, raising money through grant writing, annual fundraising, community partnerships, and individual donations.

SEED provides a wide range of support and resources to families of children with special and diverse learning needs, as well as training programs for educators who work with these children.  The programs we fund include recess facilitation, after school social skills play groups, educational seminars, support groups and socials for parents and teacher training.

SEED is grateful to all the individuals, corporations, foundations and trusts who make charitable contributions that make these important programs possible.

SEED was founded in 2006, became a legal entity in 2008 and received non-profit status in January of 2010.
