Welcome to the Somers Education Foundation website. As our grant requests from the schools continue to be innovative and inspiring, we want to thank our many supporters who continue to donate, sponsor, volunteer, partner and support the Foundation. In these difficult times, we were able to provide the Somers Public Schools with many exciting, innovative projects that enhance our students learning and inspire them to greater challenges. In just over nine years, the Somers Education Foundation has raised $459,745.00 and given over 130 grants to the Somers Public Schools.
The endowment fund has grown to over $250,000.
Thank you to all for your generosity and time.
