• SSEF 15 Years Supporting our Students

    The Star Fund Annual Campaign is the largest source of revenue for the Sarah Smith Education Foundation.

    It is is 100% funded by donations from our parents, grandparents, faculty and our generous community.  We rely on your donations to provide enhanced curriculum and programs for our students and staff that are not covered through the Atlanta Public Schools’ budget. Without the Star Fund Annual Campaign, the Sarah Smith student experience would be dramatically different!


    Why do we need an Annual Fund?Star Levels

    Imagine your child’s classroom without:

    • Chromebooks
    • Orton-Gillingham literacy and phonics resources
    • Guided reading books for small group instruction
    • Student agendas
    • Classroom libraries
    • Eureka math workbooks
    • Math manipulatives
    • Promethean boards
    • and more!

    These supplemental curriculum materials, not covered through the Atlanta Public Schools’ budget, equip our Sarah Smith teachers with state-of-the-art tools to help our children be even more successful. 

    Your participation is important and every gift counts...regardless of the amount.

    • All donors will receive recognition on our website, eblast announcements and in our SSEF Annual Report.
