For Athletics Endowment

It’s up to us.

Decades of funding cuts to education have translated into diminished athletic and physical fitness programs in our schools. Starting with reduced money for middle school programs and continuing with minimal dollars for high school sports, we are failing to provide adequate sports experiences for our students.

To fill this void, we invite you to contribute to the Santa Monica Education Foundation’s For Athletics endowment. This endowment is a community-wide effort to raise $16 million to fund excellent sports in Santa Monica schools forever.

Athletics develop strong life-long leaders. Student athletes are more likely to attend college, have higher self-esteem, and develop goal-setting and leadership skills.

When children move and play, when young people see the results of hard work and team work, when inclusivity is embraced on the field, only then are we truly educating the whole child.

So, what are you waiting for? Let’s rally behind our kids and get them jumping, kicking and scoring for their health and their future.
