SEF’S impact

SEF grants are intended to foster innovative thinking and collaboration, to solve problems, to enhance skill development, and/or to promote lifelong learning. We welcome applications in all disciplines, including academics, arts, wellness, and more.

SEF has awarded over $100,000 in grants since our inception in 2016.

Annual appeal: working towards a goal

Thanks to the ongoing support of local families and businesses, SEF has funded grants to provide innovative programs to Scituate residents. We feel so lucky to serve such an incredible town and recognize that this achievement could not have been possible without generous donations from people like you.
