All of SERF’s funds come from our community. Individuals, businesses and community organizations contribute principally through three vehicles: Our Annual Appeal, our ACE Award teacher recognition program, and our Annual Spring College Fair – a community event important for students which also raises funds.
SERF has funded nearly $270,000 to the classrooms of Sudbury over just the past 3 years. Many materials and programs purchased initially through a SERF grant years ago have become deeply woven into the curricula of many classrooms. Read about the latest grants SERF has awarded, or browse our gallery of pictures to see grants in action.
Last year, SERF received a record increase in grant applications from the schools to fund a number of diverse projects ranging from literacy curriculum materials, multi-media history materials and cutting-edge technology to music and arts enhancements. Our past grants span a wide range of students needs – curriculum enhancements targeted at the students that need more challenge and also those that have special learning needs. At a time when the school budget is stretched to the max, our educators continue to look for new ways to move the schools forward, and provide the best education for our children in Sudbury. Even when our kids are young, investing in our middle and high school now will soon benefit the elementary students of today.
We also welcome and receive donations from foundations, estates, gifts,
and corporate matching programs.
Please consider making a difference!
Thank you to all
