The Westhill Educational Foundation supports educational programs in the Westhill Central School District by expanding resources to strengthen and enhance the curriculum and level of excellence in our schools. Grants are awarded annually to motivated teachers who seek new and creative ways to challenge and inspire their students. Foundation funds are provided to supplement local and federal funding, as well as to sustain longevity through endowment.
How We Fundraise
There are a number of ways the community and alumni can contribute to the Foundation:
- Our Annual “Chip In” For Education Event
- One-Time and In-Kind Donations
- Class Reunion Breakfasts hosted by the Foundation
- Our Annual Appeal
