Donor Recognition Circles

Every child deserves the best public education possible. The Ed Foundation raises funds to ensure all students have well-rounded classroom experiences that successfully position them for their future.

We proudly acknowledge the individuals, organizations and foundations that join us in this effort with gifts of $2,500 or more to our Annual Fund in the Superintendent’s Circle or Leadership Circle. Learn about the benefits of Superintendent’s Circle or Leadership Circle membership or join today by donating online.

For more information about this program and benefits, please contact Tova Larsen, Director of Major Gifts: 310-450-8338 x70397 or tova@smedfoundation.org.
