Committed to helping our children prosper & grow through educational excellence.
What We Do
Established in 2013, the Westhill Central School District Educational Foundation was formed by a passionate group of parents and alumni in order to support and enhance the educational programs for all schools within the Westhill district. We are an independent, not-for-profit organization that raises funds through donations, events and sponsorships from local businesses, individuals and alumni across the country, to award grants to teachers to provide innovative learning programs across the district.
Thanks to a grant from the Westhill Foundation, on February 9, 6th graders celebrated “P.S. I Love You Day.” Originally created by Brooke DiPalma after losing her father in 8th grade, students customized t-shirts and led a carnival that displayed research projects, trivia games, activities to spread kindness and included special treats, including a surprise visit from Brooke herself! Plus, 6th graders were featured on News Channel 9 “Cool Schools” segment and as an added tribute, National Grid turned its building purple.
Did You Know?
Through the first 7 years, as of June 2021, the Westhill Educational Foundation had given out 86 grants across the district totaling more than $213,000.
So far in the 2021-2022 school year the Westhill Educational Foundation has given out an additional $9,800 and counting…
The Board is made up completely of community volunteers, many of them parents of students or are Westhill alumni.
With your gift to the Westhill Foundation, you are providing an opportunity for our educators to expose our students to wonderful experiences and programs that span all academic and artistic disciplines and grade levels. Every student will feel the ripple of your generosity.
Your support at any level is so appreciated. Every gift matters, no matter the size.
