What We Do
We are an all-volunteer run organization that supports excellence in education in the South Kingstown School District. We give financial grants for creative projects that are not covered in the school budget and award two scholarships to graduating seniors each year. Explore our What We Do sections to learn more about our exciting work.
If you want to support our children, teachers, and schools, we would love your involvement. Whether you would like to donate your time, your talent, or financial donation, we welcome your help.
Generously funded by South Kingstown Education Foundation as well as our various PTO’s, the Community Book Club is now being done yearly at all 4 elementary schools in SK and also at Broad Rock. The whole school community is engaged together to read or listen nightly, follow along and immerse in the story with trivia, decorations, craft packs and other fun activities. The magic that results is hard to describe. There is buzz and excitement and whispers down the hall with all the benefits of being read to and engaging as a community being augmented by these. With SKEF as an amazing community partner and volunteers working from different schools to plan and help it expands the sense of fostered community even further.
Our Impact This Year
Even during the strange year of Covid, SKEF remained active in the South Kingstown schools. We held a virtual Adopt a Grant Fundraiser helping fund over $10,000 worth of grants. Even in the most difficult times, we stayed active and successful in helping our community.
