“Honoring our Scholars” Gala 2021

Throughout this past difficult year, the Affton Education Foundation has remained dedicated to our goal of preserving the high educational standards of the Affton School District by providing additional classroom resources and inspiring students to attend college. In 2020, we succeeded in awarding 25 teacher grants for classroom enrichment, totaling over $30,000.00. In addition, we’re proud that we’ve been able to maintain our scholarship commitments, and that we are currently paying out on 26 AEF renewable college scholarships, to the tune of $65,000.00.

Even though the times are still uncertain, and despite the many challenges we all still face, we don’t want to miss the opportunity to celebrate our successes and acknowledge our many loyal supporters. In that light, we’ve decided to delay, but not cancel, our annual gathering… so please save the date for the following celebratory event:

Affton Education Foundation Gala & Auction “Honoring our Scholars”
