Helping local school districts and communities support students is a key goal of the Community Foundation for the Greater Capital Region.

School/Community Funds

Several local school districts/communities have chosen to partner with the Community Foundation to establish charitable funds that provide an additional source of support for new and ongoing projects that specifically address local needs.  These partnerships take a variety of forms, and offer local citizens a way to support their schools.

Ballston Spa Partnership for Innovation in Education Fund – to benefit various educational and mission-related programs in the Ballston Spa Central School District.

Coxsackie-Athens Foundation for Education (C.A.F.E.) – to enrich the educational programs in the Coxsackie-Athens School community as well as honor the achievements of alumni and recognize significant contributions made to the C-A school community.

Galway Support Our Schools (S.O.S.) Fund – The Galway S.O.S. Fund is composed of local community members, educators, and administrators committed to the education of Galway students and enriching the Galway community.

Greenville Educational Foundation Fund – to enrich the overall educational process of the Greenville School District by funding programs that traditionally are not or would not be financed through local tax dollars or other public resources reflected in the annual school budget.
