About the Snohomish Education Foundation
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. Learn more…
Support the Success of Snohomish Students
You can ensure a strong, healthy future for our children by supporting student success in Snohomish schools. Your support goes directly to classroom grants, scholarships, and program funding to help students reach their potential.
The Snohomish Education Foundation fosters learning by expanding opportunities for Snohomish School District students. 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.
Each year Snohomish School District graduating seniors are awarded scholarship through SEF various scholarship programs.
Each year our teachers “Imagine… the Future” and dream big – if they had the funding what could they or would they do.
Hansen Shoe Fund
Approximately 225 pair of new shoes totaling over $14,000 are supplied through this fund for students who can not otherwise afford them.
Since 1986, the Snohomish Education Foundation has invested in the students of the Snohomish School District. SEF is fueled by people who champion world-class education and excellence in cutting-edge programs for students of all ages in our district and is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.
Our children in the Snohomish School District will benefit from Foundation programs from kindergarten all the way through to high school graduation and beyond.
Since 1996, the Foundation has administered over $2,394,000 in scholarships to students at Glacier Peak, Snohomish, and AIM High Schools.
In elementary school, students benefit from online math programs, music curriculum, basic school supplies the Summer Science & Arts Academy and reading programs, through the Snohomish School District Book Café. Then in our middle schools, students have continued online math support, robotics, book clubs, and even a product engineering class where they can print their product on a 3D printer!
Over $899,000 has been given in K-12 classroom grants and over $524,000 in District-wide grants. The Foundation works side by side with the Snohomish School District to support students by investing in high-impact programs.
In high school, our students have the advantage of STEM classes, drone technology, computer science, fabrication & manufacturing, advanced robotics, pathway and other cutting-edge CTE programs along with college-level training and financial support for college scholarships for graduating seniors.

Thank you so much for the grant for a Cricut machine for our class! It was so fun to have you come in and present the certificate.
We are able to make and deliver birthday cards and seasonal greetings to the entire staff at SHS. We will now be able to hone our computer and design skills working with the new Cricut.

Dear Snohomish Education Foundation,
We just thank you so much for your donation to our classroom here in 5th grade at Cascade View. The grant money covered new books for us, yoga balls and even flash cards for math! Thank you so so much again for all your help and contribution.
Mrs. Rohona and the class
I would like to thank you for your generous donation. Because of your support we give numerous students in poverty a chance to look like everyone else in the classroom. This opportunity cuts down many barriers to their success. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Counselor, Centennial Middle School
