Help us change the way things are! Please support Safe Schools for Alex and our mission to create a safe environment for all children. Together we can ensure that when we say goodbye in the morning to our loved ones, we will see them again in the evening.
Our mission is to provide parents, school districts and law enforcement the most current school safety best practices, resources, and tools so children can learn in a safe environment.
SSFA has achieved a number of milestones including turning Max’s dream into a reality. President Trump announced in February 2020 the creation of the Federal School Safety Clearinghouse & SchoolSafety.gov. The website provides the academic community with a one-stop shop for school safety best practices and education.
In the early days after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas shooting, the Alex Schachter Scholarship fund was created to keep Alex's memory alive. The fund was initially designed to raise money for the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Marching band as well as improving school security measures. With your generous support, the Alex Schachter Scholarship Fund has raised approximately $150,000 as of 2/6/20.
Alex loved rollercoasters and wrote “Life is Like a Rollercoaster” shortly before his passing. Alex’s dad Max stated, “He wasn’t writing about his life, and had no idea that his poem would become his future.” At the young age of 14, Alex’s words have impacted us all and will stay with us forever.
