More Than $1.1 Million in Student Scholarships Now Awarded!

Thank you!


Thank you for your continued support of the South-Western City Schools Educational Foundation (SWCSEF). Because of your generous support, every year the Foundation is able to provide thousands of dollars in student scholarships and classroom grants to teachers in the district.

In partnership with corporate and individual supporters like you, the SWCSEF has given more than $1,110,000 in scholarships for post-secondary education, since the organization was founded in 1986. In addition to student scholarships, since its inception, the SWCSEF has awarded nearly $325,000 in educational grants. 

These educational grants fund a variety of classroom and school projects designed to foster innovation in teaching and exploration of new ideas and new technologies - including ten new cardboard Google Expeditions headsets  that were purchased through a SWCSEF grant. The Google Expeditions headsets allow students to travel the world - without ever having to leave their classroom.

Donations to the SWCSEF is one impactful way for community business leaders, district alumni, district teachers and administrators, and community partners to give back to our school district and our community. SWCSEF is a great place to create a scholarship in honor or memory of a loved one, pursue your personal philanthropic goals, or leave a lasting legacy to your community. We ask for your consideration for an end-of-the-year donation. More information about our donation and scholarship programs can be found here.

Together, we can achieve our vision of higher education, enhanced classroom learning and a stronger community for everyone. We thank you for your continued support of the Educational Foundation and wish you all a safe and happy holiday season.
