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.

REQUEST A GRANT

Ballston Spa Education Foundation (BSEF) is a non-profit group supporting the mission of the Ballston Spa Central School District by raising and distributing resources for educational enrichment outside the daily operational needs of the school district. Since its inception in 1996, BSEF has granted nearly $400,000 to fund educationally enriching programs at all levels. Our dedicated group of volunteers, including parents, school board members and teachers, work together

TASTE OF BALLSTON SPA

In light of the growing concerns around coronavirus / COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the upcoming Taste of Ballston Spa. Your health and safety are our highest priority, and we believe this decision is in the best interest of our attendees and restaurant partners.

We appreciate your ongoing support of the BSEF and our local sponsors, partners, and restaurants who graciously agreed to participate in this year’s event.

We’re already working on a new way for you to support the BSEF and the great district educators who receive our grants.
