Welcome to the spring-ford educational foundation
The purpose of the SFEF is to secure resources from individuals, corporations, community organizations and foundations to be distributed in support of programs for the benefit of the students and residents in the Spring-Ford Area School District. These resources will be used in a generally charitable way to enhance the quality of the Spring-Ford Area School District community.
In 1993, Spring-Ford Area School District established the Spring-Ford Area School District Educational Foundation (Section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code), whose name was later changed to Spring-Ford Educational Foundation, to serve as a non-profit arm of the district, through which the district is able to compete for non-profit dollars, such as available grant monies. The purpose of the Educational Foundation is to help the district provide scholarships, special programs and services for students and the community that might not otherwise be possible.
When you look at the society around us today and the struggles many of our people face, it becomes so clear that education has a profound impact on our quality of life. It is also clear that it is not just the education that we as individuals receive that make a difference. It is just as important that all those who live in the same world that we live in receive the quality of education that will help each and every person make a positive contribution to our community. That is why Spring-Ford Area School District strongly believes that delivering a solid, well-rounded education to our youth does indeed hold the promise for a strong community tomorrow. With this understanding in mind, the Spring-Ford Area School District has always sought to promote the interest of our community at large by educating its students to the highest standards, so that they in turn will someday be able to give back to our community as productive, responsible, involved citizens.
Funds raised through the Educational Foundation have over the years supported the following projects: annual scholarships to graduating Spring-Ford seniors; renovation of the old Royersford Elementary Fourth Avenue building as the Bard Community Center, which is home to the Royersford Public Library and Project Outreach; an annual Summer Concert for the community; and classroom grants.
