WELCOME TO THE BALLSTON SPA EDUCATION FOUNDATION

MISSION

Our mission is to support educational enrichment for the students of Ballston Spa. Through grants to educators, we fund projects that are outside the scope of the Ballston Spa Central School District's budget.  Specifically, projects that impact students’ intellectual, emotional, physical, or social development—increasing the depth and/or variety of subjects or some other form of educational benefit.

We like to think of ourselves as the “cherry on top” of what is regularly funded by the District.

We don’t fill holes in school funding; we amplify the education experiences of children.
