SAF - Student Activities Fund

  • Student Activity Fund (SAF)

    Founded 1999

    Supporting Student Success for 20 years

    A 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Corporation

    Who are we? The school’s nonprofit, fundraising umbrella organization that provides non-profit status (to encourage tax deductible contributions) and general liability insurance coverage to sponsored student groups, clubs and activities.  SAF’s board is comprised of volunteer parents, students and ECHS staff that provide oversight for this umbrella fundraising unit.  

    What do we do? The group raises funds through an annual Direct Appeal effort, community solicitation and sponsorship, and other activities throughout the year. These funds support ECHS student programs, clubs, athletics and curriculum enrichment, and are determined by the board through an annual grant process.

    How does my donation help? Your donation will be applied to the General Fund, which fulfills grant requests annually. Alternately, you can specify that your donation be applied directly to one of SAF’s Sponsored Group Committees (SCGs) or to a particular group/activity. Just note this on your check or in the PayPal comment box.
