ABOUT US

In Stowe, the quality of education, the spirit of the community and the health of the economy are inextricably linked. With the belief that an outstanding education is one of the greatest gifts we can give our children, SEF strives to provide funding for projects and programs that promote excellence and an expanded educational experience.

 

We are a 100% volunteer based non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to support and enrich education in the Stowe public school system. Through fundraising and community involvement, we collaborate with parents, teachers, administrators and the community to achieve the short and long term educational goals of the Stowe schools.

SEF shares the belief that strong public schools are an essential asset to the quality of life and the future well being of our community. Together we can help our children become productive, responsible and caring citizens.

Each year, SEF works with the school community and school board to identify areas of need at all three Stowe schools that are outside of the school budget.

 

Since becoming a 100% volunteer organization in 2011, through the community's support, we have been able to fund $232,000 worth of projects and initiatives!
