SEF Board President

It is my pleasure and honor to announce on behalf of the San Gabriel Educational Foundation (SEF) Board of Directors that we proudly support the students of the San Gabriel Unified School District (SGUSD). In the 2019/2020 academic year, with YOUR generous donations we are able to fund programs supporting our students.

Where does your money go you ask?

SEF serves the schools, teachers, students and families of the SGUSD. That’s eight public schools, almost 5,000 students and approximately 248 teachers. As the philanthropic partner to the school district, we actively forge partnerships and develop community collaborations, grants, events and public awareness in support of student achievement through the backing of high quality education.

We are fortunate to live and work in an incredible community and our kids deserve the best education available. Our work for 2019/20 is not yet done…we are striving to increase community and family participation and need your help in reaching our goal. EVERY dollar counts…no amount is too small to donate…it ALL adds up! ALL the money raised directly benefits the students. From moms and dads to grandparents, neighbors and community business owners…everyone can join our cause! In fact, it is as simple as asking 10 people to invest $10 in SEF. We invite you to make your tax deductible donation today!

Interested in joining our team? The SEF Board of Directors is comprised of people like you who support educational opportunities, innovative programming and equity for all of the students of the SGUSD. Contact the office today at (626) 451-5465!

As always, I welcome your ideas, your enthusiasm and your support. When the San Gabriel Community connects, everybody wins!

Wishing you all a very happy and healthy fall!!
