Art Show

Whether you are getting your hands dirty spinning pottery or using a single pencil for your masterpiece, the Salem-Keizer Student Art Show allows students to display their artwork in a gallery setting.

Awesome 3000

It’s SKEF’s signature event and one of the largest timed youth runs in the nation. Every year, thousands of supporters fill the stadium to cheer on more than 3,000 runners. It’s positively exhilarating.

Back to School Lunch

Join us for this exciting fundraising luncheon and help a child achieve their dreams. The strength of the Foundation and the success of our students depends on the dedication of people like you.

Crystal Apple Awards

Imagine a festive evening where schools are the stars and educators walk the red carpet. That’s the vibe at Salem’s Historic Elsinore Theatre every year as SKEF recognizes excellence in education by honoring those who make significant impact in the lives of children.

School Supply Drive

Adults and kids from all corners of the community support our annual School Supply Drive by dropping off donations at participating locations. Items go to SKEF’s School Supply Depot, which offers items free, year-round, to schools across the Salem-Keizer School District.

Urban AgFest

Ever dig for potatoes or press apples for a fresh cup of cider? That’s the kind of interactive learning offered at 20 or more booths and attractions. It’s the perfect field trip for kids learning about the importance of good nutrition and a healthy agricultural environment.
