Mission
Supporting Student Success
The Snohomish Education Foundation fosters learning by expanding opportunities for Snohomish School District students.

SEF carries out the mission by providing classroom grants, scholarships, and program funding to help students reach their potential. Striving to expand opportunities while facing fluctuating state and local resources, we work year-round to connect with schools, get to know their needs, and raise funds to support them. We believe that opportunity and excellence in the schools ultimately strengthen the community.

History
A Strong Community, Growing Stronger
It was by serendipity that our two founding members, Marian Berge and Mal Harding, each just having returned from separate conferences, decided to join the buzz around school foundations. They recognized the long tradition of Snohomish support for its schools, and realized that creating a foundation was natural undertaking for this community. That was 1986. Since then, SEF’s efforts to broaden educational opportunities for students in the Snohomish School District have flourished.
