We would like to thank our 2020 Breakfast Sponsors:

SEF's COVID-19 Response
Basic School Supplies
With all the Snohomish School District schools being closed due to the COVID-19 virus, the District (via the Kid’s Café & school buses) distributed sack breakfast and lunches to all kids in-need at different distribution points.

The kids also needed basic school supplies at home. SEF funded $3,000 to make this happen.  

With the funds that were provided, the district provided school supplies to about 160 families that attend Central/Emerson Elementary, 25 families that attend Cathcart Elementary, 30 families that attend Seattle Hill Elementary, 25 families that attend Riverview Elementary, 25 families that attend Dutch Hill Elementary, 25 families that attend Totem Falls Elementary and 10 families that attend Little Cedars Elementary.

Hansen Shoe Fund Coin Drive
The annual Hansen Shoe Fund coin drive raised $14,226.77 in coins, checks and online donations, all to support buying shoes for needy students in the Snohomish School District. The big effort by students, school staff, parents, volunteers, and the community beat the $10,000 goal.

“For decades, the coin drive has generated student and community enthusiasm and generosity. This year was no different. Students, staff and parents at district schools were ‘all in’ to gather coins – all in the interest of helping others. Their efforts and generous donations from community added up to more than our $10,000 goal this year,” said Kay Ditzenberger, Fund Drive chair.

The Shoe Fund donations are managed by the Snohomish Education Foundation. The Foundation teams up with Kohl’s in Snohomish to get new shoes to needy children, and through Operation School Bell, a program of the Assistance League in Everett.

“Even though school is postponed now, those funds will be available to meet student needs when schools open again. Last year, almost 300 students received shoes in this program. Given the economic uncertainty now and struggles families are having in the COVID-19 health crisis, we may see even more students receiving shoes through this program once school reopens. Thanks to this community’s generosity and students’ enthusiasm, the funds will be there,” said Ditzenberger.
SEF Awards 2020 Classroom Grants
The Snohomish Education Foundation (SEF) recently awarded 170 classroom grants to Snohomish School District teachers and staff totaling $74,256 for 2020. The Foundation was able to fund, either in full or partially, 90 percent of the applications received. The classroom grants were personally delivered to many very surprised teachers in their classrooms and staff meetings throughout the District by SEF Board members, Snohomish School District Superintendent, Dr. Kent Kultgen, School Board member, Brandy Hekker. District Communications Director, Kristin Foley, and SEF Executive Director, Ken Hammond.

“WOW! Thank you so much for your support! This grant not only will benefit my students this year, it will benefit students in the coming years! Thanks again,” said Emily Taylor, Para-educator at Cascade View Elementary School
in Snohomish.

The grants will improve student learning in literacy, science, technology, engineering, and math. Since the program began in 1996, the Snohomish Education Foundation has funded over $899,000 to 1,730 teachers and staff in the Snohomish School District.

“Through the tremendous generosity of our donors and the great support of our community, the Snohomish Education Foundation was able to award a generous amount this year in classroom grants. The Foundation and our classroom grant program are proud to support more students in the Snohomish community than any other organization. We thank everyone who has contributed to the great success of the program,” said Steve Thomas, Chairman of the SEF Classroom Grant Committee.
