A holiday gift that honors teachers and helps students

Sure you could give your kid’s teacher another mug this holiday season, but how about giving them a gift that keeps on giving instead? Show your appreciation this year by giving your favorite teachers a Red Apple Award.

You give a Red Apple Award by making a tax-deductible donation to the Southborough Education Foundation. Designate which teacher or staff member you want the award to go to, and they’ll receive a certificate with your child’s name on it. You decide the amount of the donation – it won’t be printed on the certificate. Your contribution can honor more than one teacher or staff member.

The Red Apple Award program is a major fundraiser for SEF, which over the past 12 years has distributed more than $230K in grants to Southborough educators. With your contribution, you’ll help support innovative educational programs for your child.

The last day to order a Red Apple Award is Friday, December 17. Here’s the form you need.

Update: When I originally published this story, I wrote that SEF had awarded $23K in grants over the past 12 years. I left out a zero. They’ve actually awarded more than $230,000 in grants. Pretty impressive. (Thanks to Terry for the correction!)

Just wondering ...

Is the actual amount of the red apple award given specifically to the teacher for her class/projects, or does it go into the general SEF fund that is then awarded to particular projects?
