Since 2007, the Memorial Fund has matched State funding for the Parent Trust Fund to support training opportunities for parents in civic leadership skills to improve the health, safety, and learning of children.   

Parent involvement programs supported by the Parent Trust Fund include the nationally recognized Parent Leadership Training Institute (PLTI), the University of Connecticut-sponsored People Empowering People (PEP), Parents Supporting Educational Excellence (PSEE) offered by the Connecticut Center for School Change, and ASPIRA’s APEX, among others.  

The State Department of Education administers the Parent Trust Fund through the State Education and Resource Center (SERC).
