It is with great sadness that we share Springboard and Apache’s founder Raymond Plank passed away peacefully last Friday, November 9 at the age of 96.

Raymond founded Springboard in 2004 to fulfill his vision to provide educational opportunities to underserved populations as part of his larger commitment to education as the essential first step up the social and economic ladder. 

Under this program, 201 one-classroom girls’ schools were built in Egypt that are still making a difference today.


We would like to express our sincere condolences to his family. May his soul rest in peace.
