Ready for School

Seed Money for Growing Minds

Our Focus is to improve educational opportunities for our West Sonoma County students through programs, grants and scholarships that:

  • Help underachieving kids

  • Provide gifted children with educational challenges

  • Provide schools with funding for under-funded priorities such as music, performing arts, and vocational training

  • Make a diiference in the education of our local children

  • Recognize Teacher excellence

Our Reason To Be

SREF was created in 1982 because our Rotary Club recognized that it wanted to provide a steady and continuing level of support for education projects in West County that were not subject to the ups and downs of annual fundraising.  We wanted the ability to commit to bigger projects over the long term than we could do if we were solely dependent on our yearly fundraisers.
