“I’d like to extend my sincere congratulations and best wishes to the Class of 2019. These students are outstanding in many arenas beyond their studies; they are perceptive and energetic, and are ready to go out into the world and get involved in finding solutions for today’s national and global challenges. It is my pleasure to partner with the Snohomish community to support these graduates on their many pathways to the future through our local scholarship program,“ said Carol Robinson, SEF Board member and Scholarship Committee Chair.

The students were recently recognized at Senior Recognition Night at all three high schools. In attendance were members of the Snohomish School District Board, School District Administrators, teachers, families and friends.

Since 1996, the Snohomish Education Foundation has awarded over $2,207,631 in scholarships to Snohomish School District graduates. In 2019, the Foundation added three new scholarships; Gordon Cole Scholarship, Randy Thaut Memorial Sports Scholarship, and the Ryan Seek Memorial Scholarship. The Foundation invites donations to existing scholarships or to establish new scholarships in honor of, a memorial, or by an organization, family or alumni group.

The Snohomish Education Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to supporting student success through scholarships, classroom grants, District grants, and the Hansen Shoe Fund. As a community-based organization, the Foundation relies on private donors and volunteers to carry out their mission of fostering learning by expanding opportunities for Snohomish School District students.

Learn how you can help fund college dreams

Scholarships are tax deductible donations and assist students with costs associated with higher education. These scholarships are easy to start and rewarding to give. We encourage all of our scholarship sponsors to provide eligibility standards and/or participate in hand selecting their recipient(s). Each spring we hold a special ceremony to celebrate student accomplishments and invite sponsors to meet their recipients. Here are a few reasons that scholarships are an ideal giving opportunity.

Local businesses may choose to award scholarships for a variety of reasons: to encourage study in their chosen field, increase their pool of qualified employees, or provide a community service.

Service organizations award scholarships each year that encourage volunteerism within the community and reward students for good citizenship.

Scholarships in the name of a family or in honor of a loved one. Scholarships are an incredible way to leave a legacy for a person or an entity.

The Snohomish Education Foundation not only provides administrative support, it also awards several thousand dollars in funds each year to students. The Foundation can also assist with the creation and maintenance of endowments. Endowments are principal investments that self fund awards through earnings.
