Grants Celebration, November 2017

Thank you to everyone who made the Shelter Island Educational Foundation Grants Celebration on Sunday, November 19, 2017 truly a celebration. Thanks to the standing-room-only crowd of parents, friends and supporters, to the 20 enthusiastic and grateful students who shared their adventures and to our hard-working volunteer members of the board and the Grants Committee.

Most of all, thank you to our donors who made it all possible. The Shelter Island Educational Foundation awarded $71,000 in grants last year.

As one woman said at the end, “Listening to these kids makes me want to go out and change the world.”
