WHAT IS SEF?
It’s all of us! Saratoga Education Foundation (SEF) is district families that work together to provide our children with enrichments that make their education more valuable and competitive.
We are all fortunate to be a part of a district that spends wisely and provides the best teachers, small class sizes, and quality campuses. SEF was founded to expand funding to also provide enrichments our community values. SEF has a board of directors that do the heavy lifting of coordinating donations and turning them into opportunities for our children but everyone that makes a donation is an equal member. We have several meetings throughout the year and two surveys where you can give input and gather information.
SEF provides enrichments to all district students each year with family contributions. In 2022-2023, families contributed over $600,000 to fund Makerspace, Music, Science labs, Specialized PE and STEM classes this year!
Let's all do our part and contribute to continue funding our children’s educational enrichments. Please consider making a donation today!
Suggested donation of $1000 per student – please contribute today!
Donations are tax-deductible.
Thank you for your donation and support of SEF enrichments!
WHY DOES SEF FUNDRAISE?
SUSD provides Saratoga TK-8th grade students with a high-quality, purposeful education. However, the property taxes and other public funding granted to SUSD are simply not sufficient to cover several enrichment programs. Therefore, SEF fundraises to provide a grant to SUSD for Makerspace, Music, Science labs, Specialized PE and STEM classes, providing bonus co-curricular programs during school hours.
WHAT IS THE FUNDRAISING GOAL FOR SEF IN THE 2023- 2024 ACADEMIC YEAR?
