Programs by School

Donations to the Ed Foundation’s annual campaign and endowments directly benefit students at every Santa Monica school.

Annual donations to the Ed Foundation fund P.S. ARTS, instructional aides and a stretch grant for each school. Distance learning programs funded by stretch grants are being finalized by principals and school site councils (some programs below may not be happening now due to distance learning). The lists will be updated as programs are finalized.

Ed Foundation endowments pay for additional arts and music support, while the Ed Foundation’s blue book bins support school libraries.
