In 2003-2004, through the vision of Dr. Stephen and Marilyn Jones, the Syracuse City School District Educational Foundation was founded to provide children of the Syracuse City Schools with hands-on, enriching educational projects that they would otherwise be unlikely to experience at school.
Since that time, the Foundation has funded more than $750,000 in educational grant projects benefitting students in kindergarten through high school. From projects that train students to play drums and compose their own original music pieces to projects that bring iPads and video equipment into the classroom, from fishing to robotics and more, the SCSD Educational Foundation is bringing learning to life for SCSD students.
Thanks to the annual Educational Foundation golf tournament and recognition breakfast, these invaluable enrichment opportunities continue year after year. The funds raised at these events from corporate and individual sponsors allow our students the ability to work with their peers in other schools, experience one-of-a-kind field trips and meet guest speakers that help them expand their horizons. The generous support of the SCSD Educational Foundation and Board of Directors, as well as the larger Syracuse community, ensures that our students are challenged and engaged in learning. We look forward to continuing this partnership for many years to come.
