For the past two decades, the Ballston Spa Education Foundation has raised and distributed funds to educators in an effort to enhance the educational experience of students in grades K-12, outside the realm of the daily operational needs of the Ballston Spa Central School District. Since our inception in 1996, our volunteer-driven, non-profit foundation has awarded more than $330,000 in grants directly to teachers, supporting a wide array of educational programming

Within the past few years, grants have funded a wide variety of projects and equipment purchases, including: 

  • Purchasing chess sets for the elementary chess club 

  • Installing a learning and reading garden 

  • Sponsoring visiting authors 

  • Instituting a school-wide composting program 

  • Purchasing a printing press and telescopes 

  • And many more exciting projects!

All gifts directly benefit the students in our community by giving them educational opportunities they may otherwise not have. Please join us and give a gift today! 


With sincere appreciation, 

Karen Barone, Chair 
Ballston Spa Education Foundation
