About the Scarborough Education Foundation

The Scarborough Education Foundation (SEF) funds the best ideas of the districts brightest and most motivated educators by raising financial resources within the community through donations and fundraising events. Educators may submit an application to the Foundation, during one or our semi-annual grant cycles, seeking support for a specific initiative or program that they wish to implement in their instructional framework. All grant requests must be approved by the respective Principals and are then reviewed by the Foundation’s Grant Review Committee, which is made up of board members, education professionals, and other residents who represent various segments of the community. Recommendations regarding grant awards are made by the review committee to the Board of Directors which renders final approval regarding awards and the distribution of funds.
