2023/24 School Year Support

The Made in Santa Rosa Education Foundation provided grants to eight elementary schools, two middle schools, and one Pre-K special education school, impacting and engaging approximately 4,500 students. 

The grants included:

Albert Biella Elementary: Funding for walk-a-thon t-shirts for all students. Many students each year are unable to purchase one, so now all students will receive one for the coveted March event. Students are then encouraged to wear the t-shirts on Fridays as a school community.

Brook Hill Elementary: Funding for at-lunch and after-school clubs including Environmental, Crochet, Cheerleading, Bobcat Bootcamp, Art and Volleyball. Most students at this school cannot afford such camps outside of school.

Helen Lehman Elementary: Funding for an Art Docent program

Hidden Valley Elementary: Funding for plants and seeds for a new campus garden

Lewis Early Learning Academy: Funding for a family education event focusing on self-care strategies, as the parents of children with special needs have additional pressures that can be extra-taxing on the family unit

Abraham Lincoln Elementary: Funding for classroom door murals featuring culturally relative images students will help create along with a professional artist

Luther Burbank Elementary: Funding for book inventory for their book vending machine

Proctor Terrace Elementary: Funding for school garden plants and supplies

Herbert Slater Middle School: Funding for violins for a new orchestra and mariachi band

Santa Rosa Middle School: Funding for their Make Gardens Grown program expansion
