Fundraising Goals

Formally established in February 2002, the foundation supports programs operated by SCOE including the Youth Entertainment Stage (YES) Company, Students Events (Academic Decathlon, Mock Trial, etc.) and Outdoor Education.

"Each year, more than 12,000 students from throughout the county participate in programs supported by this Foundation," said former Foundation Board Member Dave Gianelli. "During these tight budget times when schools are forced to cut their budgets, it's great to see community members step up to support outstanding educational programs."
