About SEF

The Somerville Educational Foundation was formed in 1998 to provide funds for creative and innovative programs for the students of the Somerville Public schools. The SEF is committed to supporting creative and innovative teaching and learning programs in the Somerville schools. Our mission is to fund grants presented by the faculty and students for programs that fall outside of the normal budgeting process. Year-long fundraising efforts in addition to donations raise the monies needed to support these programs.
