About Our Auction
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. Each year we raise funds so that our innovative educators can enhance the instruction of our youngest community members.
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.
About Ballston Spa Education Foundation
Our mission is to support educational enrichment for the students of Ballston Spa. Through grants to educators, we fund projects that are outside the scope of the Ballston Spa Central School District's budget. Specifically, projects that impact students’ intellectual, emotional, physical, or social development—increasing the depth and/or variety of subjects or some other form of educational benefit.
We like to think of ourselves as the “cherry on top” of what is regularly funded by the District.
We don’t fill holes in school funding; we amplify the education experiences of children.
