Through its all-volunteer effort supported by charitable contributions, SEF fills a vital gap for Shrewsbury students. SEF grants allow dedicated educators to create new learning vehicles that cannot be supported as traditional financial resources have tightened. SEF grants encourage creative approaches to educating the whole child—further meeting their intellectual, psychosocial and health needs. Since its inception in 1992, SEF has awarded over $250,000 in grants to Shrewsbury Public schools for innovative programs reaching students at every level, from preschool to high school.

Shrewsbury Education Foundation (SEF) is an all-volunteer organization that raises money to fund grants which put resources and programs directly into the classroom. Annually Shrewsbury Public School teachers write grant applications seeking funding for unique learning experiences and resources that will directly benefit students. Without SEF grants teachers would be unable to purchase the materials needed to deliver these valuable learning experiences due to tight education budgets.

SEF raises money through events, donations and corporate sponsors. Please help SEF today by attending one of our events or making a donation today.
