WHO WE ARE
South Kingstown Education Foundation (SKEF) was established in 2003 to support educational initiatives in the South Kingstown Public Schools. Since inception, SKEF has raised over $200,000 thanks to the generous support of area residents and businesses, and an initial matching grant from The Rhode Island Foundation.
Every year, SKEF awards grants to parents, teachers, students, and community members to support innovative educational projects in our schools.
