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 a half a million dollars to fund educationally enriching programs at all levels. Our dedicated group of volunteers, including parents, school board members and teachers, work together to raise money that goes directly to programs and technology for the use and benefit of students at Ballston Spa schools. Granting applications from teachers and administrators are reviewed and funded twice a year.


The BSEF is a not-for-profit corporation, incorporated under the laws of the State of New York and registered with the Office of the New York State Attorney General, Bureau of Charities and has a 501(c)(3) designation by the IRS.
