The planning for a school foundation was initiated in 1983 by Joseph Sabatella,
then Assistant Principal at Brewster High School and
George Zupko, Director of Student Services, under the leadership of Superintendent
James Monk. The Brewster Education Foundation was incorporated later that school
year and was supported by the Board of Education and dedicated community leaders.
It was the first such foundation in New York to develop public-private collaboration
for a public school district.
Independent of the school district, the Foundation raises and disburses funds for
projects beyond those supported by regular school sources. The additional funding
helps fill the gap that exists between the programs teachers would like to have
and those available to them through district budgeting.
The Foundation has also become the manager of a growing number of financial endowments,
established by community members in the name of friends and loved ones. The endowments
generate revenue to provide scholarships and other educational opportunities as
directed by the endowments.
The Brewster Education Foundation has thus established itself as a part of the support
for public education in the Brewster community and continues to involve the community
in the pursuit of excellence in education.
