Welcome to The Tefft Foundation
The Stanton E. and M. Elaine Tefft Foundation was established to help preserve American heritage and culture, in part, by recognizing high school seniors who have materially contributed to the educational and civic landscape of their community.
Prizes to be awarded in 2018 are: The Stanton E. Tefft Prize in Civil Rights; The Stanton E. Tefft Prize in Jazz Music and The Stanton E. Tefft Prize in Track & Field.
Eligibility for these monetary prizes is open to seniors attending the following Concord, NH high schools: Bishop Brady, Concord High School, Concord Christian Academy, Merrimack Valley High School and St. Paul's. The seniors attending the Academy of Science and Design in Nashua, NH are also now eligible.
The late Stanton E. Tefft, for whom these prizes are named, was a graduate of Concord High School, class of 1943. He excelled in track and jazz music and later as an attorney fought for the RIGHTS* that he truly believed were guaranteed to every American citizen. Both he and Mrs. Tefft devoted time, effort and resources trying to improve educational opportunities in New Hampshire. Additional learning facilities may be added in the future.
