Our grant programs will support student centered projects, professional development for teachers and the increased integration of technology throughout the school system.
How You Can Help
There are several ways to support the SEF and its efforts. Direct monetary contributions have the greatest impact and are the backbone of SEF funding. Donations, which can be made directly through the SEF website or by contacting a board member, are tax-deductible and often augmented by corporate matches. Estate bequests and named endowments are also encouraged. Besides donations, you can also help by volunteering your time and expertise, attending fundraising events, joining the board of directors, and being a community advocate for our activities and mission. Finally, you can all share in the fruits of our success, enriched Swampscott school students.
