“I am extremely grateful for receiving the Sequim Education Foundation STEM Scholarship — every day I take a moment to ground myself and realize how fortunate I am to have been raised in such a supportive and caring community.”
Katherine Landoni, SEF Scholarship Recipient
Sequim Education Foundation’s mission is “to be a catalyst for vibrant growth of each student in the Sequim Community.” Our vision is to inspire and support a lifelong love of learning.
SEF was formed in 2001 as a non-profit public charity by a small group of concerned business and community leaders who were committed to the youth of Sequim. SEF has grown over the years thanks to those community members, parents, teachers, students and school administrators who are committed to ensuring students from the Sequim School District have opportunities to pursue their dreams.
SEF develops and focuses resources to make measurable strides in the success of the Sequim learning community. We are guided by principles that ensure top-quality public education for all.
- Collaboration – partner with students, teachers, administrators, civic organizations, donors and business partners to provide greater educational opportunities for all students
- Innovation – provide opportunities of innovative teaching, programs, processes, technologies and services that add value to and increase student learning
- Integrity –conduct all business in an ethical and professional manner
- Stewardship – accountable in action and attitude for the resources entrusted to us, based on financially responsible decisions
