Our Mission

With your support the Sutton Education Foundation's fundraising efforts are able to fund educational grant money for the benefit of Sutton Public School Children.  Each year teachers are able to submit grant requests to the Foundation.  We are proud that each year, more grant requests have been funded.  Read on to see how Sutton's children have benefited from the Sutton Education Foundation Trust's fundraising efforts.

Grants awarded for 2015-2016 school year

SEFT has awarded two grants for the start of the 2015-2016 school year. The first grant funds a speaker series called "Understanding your Teen" to help support parents of upper school students through education on topics that are facing our teenagers.  The second grant supplies balance ball chairs to the elementary school.

Three Grants awarded for 2014-2015 school year

SEFT has awarded three grants totaling $13,000 for this school year.  The first grant enables the Middle-High School library to purchase 20 Nook eReaders and 200 book titles.  The second grant allows the seventh grade English/History class to purchase computers and other material to be used in the Roman Aqueduct Project.  The computers will be maintained by the school and can be used in other projects for years to come.  The third grant completes the purchase of the Xylophone ensemble for the Early Learning and Elementary music department.  We believe that all the grants make for better learning experiences at Sutton Schools.

Grants Awarded for 2013-2014


SEFT has approved two grant submissions for the 2013-2014 school year.  One grant is a follow-on to the Xylophones that were purchased for the music department.  The grant allows for 3 additional Soprano Xylophones and finger cymbals.  The second grant will fund materials used in an Environmental Science Garden.  Fifty Juniors and Seniors who are enrolled in Environmental Science at Sutton High School will grow plants, including vegetables, in the courtyard of the new school.  Students will use the garden to study concepts such as the carbon cycle, environmental footprint data, pros and cons of local production of produce, soil and water quality and acid rain.
