I believe that our country is only as strong as its commitment to its youth. I wish to promote the understanding that our nation’s youth is our greatest asset and legacy for our future. My faith in these beliefs led me to create the Albert J. Speh, Jr. and Claire R. Speh Foundation.

Through this foundation, I wish to create partnerships with individuals and institutions who share the vision that the moral and intellectual development of our youth is our prime responsibility - a responsibility that will become a measure of our country's greatness. It is also my intent that this foundation will continue to foster a spirit of service amongst this organization’s members now and in the future.

Moving forward, it is my desire that we remain committed to these guiding principals. The assets I’ve endowed to this foundation shall be used to support organizations that demonstrate a moral, ethical, and intellectual structure for the care of the youth in their charge.
