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.
This year, a record number of grants were submitted to the Westhill Educational Foundation from teachers across all grade levels for creative programs involving the arts, music, STEM projects and more. As a result, the Foundation approved a record $40,000 to fund 17 programs.
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?
In just 4 years, The Westhill Education Foundation has given back more than $112,000 in grants across the district.
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.
