SEF would like to thank the Hilton for the $28,000 donation! This gift marks the fourth annual significant gift to Foundation from the Hilton, with the foundation receiving $106,000 from the Hilton since 2010.
This is such a generous donation to SEF which will help support the Foundation’s “Fund the Gap” Campaign, currently underway. With a goal of raising $150,000 by June 30, 2014, “Fund the Gap” is targeted to help San Gabriel schools bridge the financial gap created by the state education budget shortfalls. The Campaign is earmarked to help fund K-3 music instruction, elementary visual arts instruction, performing art curriculum at Jefferson Middle School, college counseling support at Gabrielino High School, and many other vital programs and curriculum at all eight schools in the San Gabriel Unified School District (SGUSD) for the 2014-2015 academic year. All K-12 students in the District will benefit from the “Fund the Gap” Campaign.
With this donation, SEF is thrilled to once again honor the Los Angeles/San Gabriel Hilton as the Event Sponsor for SEF’s upcoming benefit gala, “SEF-apalooza!” The fourth annual fundraising event will be held on Saturday, March 22, 2014 at the San Gabriel Country Club, and will feature fine dining, an incredible silent auction, spirited live auction, music and dancing. This donation also provides the Hilton with their continued partnership as a Platinum Sponsor in our SEF Business Alliance Program, which provides opportunity for local businesses to partner with SEF to support San Gabriel Unified Schools and promote their business.

Attendees are asked to bring a gift card or cash donation to be used in support of the annual benefit gala, SEFapalooza, on March 22, 2014. No gift amount is too small.
It’s Giving Tuesday across the country – Let’s celebrate the season of giving and make it count for SEF!
After Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday, there’s Giving Tuesday! Giving Tuesday kicks off the season of giving with a day dedicated to giving back to non profit organizations. In this spirit, I encourage you to share our message with those in your personal and professional networks so they may consider a year end gift to the foundation.
Gifts to the Foundation, regardless of the amount, helps us continue our mission of providing support to all of the students in our schools. The Foundation needs your support during our year end push as we move to shape our students’ experiences, empowering them for scholastic achievement, personal growth and successful futures. A reminder – all gifts received by December 31 are tax-deductible for 2013.
