The purpose of the South Shore Educational Foundation (SSEF) is to ensure funding for unique and creative learning opportunities. The SSEF supports and enhances public education by receiving tax-deductible donations from individuals, businesses, community service organizations, and other friends. These donations are allocated to schools to finance exciting, enhanced learning opportunities for students.
Projects may be large or small, but what they have in common is that they all make a tremendous difference to a student's learning opportunities. To date, more than $880,000 has been distributed to over 400 projects in elementary and secondary schools throughout Riverside School Board. Donations can be ear-marked to a particular school or a particular project.
By providing funding not available from any other source, the SSEF helps Riverside School Board ensure a stimulating and caring environment, and assist students to achieve personal success.
