The mission of the Eastchester School Foundation is to enrich academic, arts, and athletic programs that serve students in the Eastchester Union Free School District. The Foundation facilitates, enhances and financially supports worthy causes and special needs of the district, consistent with the philosophy of education of the Eastchester Schools.
The Foundation achieves its mission by providing grants for creative programs that are not funded under the school district budget. We seek projects that are innovative, have significant educational impact and demonstrate the potential to deliver long-term benefits beyond the year of the grant.
The Eastchester School Foundation has granted over $250,000 in support of programs proposed by the faculty and administration of the Eastchester Union Free School District, funding creative ideas at levels ranging from $200 to more than $6,000. This year we look forward to continuing our support of innovative proposals that expand the range of learning opportunities for our students.
