Community Funding for
Student Innovation and Creativity


The Croton Harmon Education Foundation (CHEF) is a non-profit educational foundation funded by community donations — from people like thank you!

Our goal is to seed innovative and creative initiatives that have lasting value to the Croton Harmon School District. Teachers, administrators, students, and any other community members are invited to submit grant applications for innovations big and small. It's our job to bring these ideas to life. We review the grant submissions and if approved, we provide funding to implement them.

We’ve been funding exciting projects in all three schools since 2000, from the start up of the strings program, to the recent state-of-the-art collaborative workspace at the Croton-Harmon High School.
