President's Message

Dear Friends of SEF,

San Gabriel Educational Foundation has grown tremendously over the last few years and still with the presence of the pandemic and continued budget cuts at public schools there will be an even greater need for SEF funding. Our opportunity for financial growth, however, is 100 percent correlated with the strength of our Volunteer Board. 

Did you know that volunteering has many benefits? Not only does it improve your community, but it also increases your happiness, helps you develop new skills, advances your career and connects you with others! There are numerous volunteer opportunities available at SEF.  Click HERE to find out more.

Please contact us if you are interested in serving on the Board and making a difference in San Gabriel public schools and impacting our student community.

Please read through the rest of our newsletter to see some wonderful upcoming opportunities to support SEF. From the 1st Annual Art Exhibition sponsorship opportunities to becoming a Champion of Education as part of our on-going Annual Fund Campaign, there are many ways to help SEF raise funds. Of course, all of the funds that SEF raises are used to support our students in our eight school sites!  SEF's ability to continue to support our students and other programs is 100 percent dependent on the funds we are able to raise. Money In = Money Out, No Money In = No Money Out-it's that simple. Make a decision to support SEF today and be a community sponsor to Dream. Create. Imagine. by making a donation.

We can make a difference,
Alison DeVriendt
SEF President 2020-2021
