The San Gabriel Educational Foundation (SEF), the primary fundraising partner of the San Gabriel Unified School District (SGUSD), has received an $8,000 Grand Award from the Pasadena Showcase House for the Arts in support of their K-3 Music Program.
SEF is incredibly honored to be chosen as a grant award recipient this year. The grant award will contribute to SEF’s Kindergarten through Third Grade Music Instructional Program at all five public elementary schools in the community.

“We are thrilled the Pasadena Showcase House for the Arts has selected SEF as one of its 2014 grantees,” stated SEF Board President Lori Husein. “The K-3 Music Program is a valued program in our community and the grant will allow SEF to maintain the program and works towards an increase in instructional minutes for our students. We are extremely grateful for their investment in our children”.
