We are dedicated to supporting and working in collaboration with the greater Averill Park educational community by providing supplemental discretionary funding that delivers and achieves an exceptional educational experience for all current and future generations.

Registration is closed for the 17th annual Gala. Thank you for your support!!!

Annual Fundraising Gala

The APEF Annual Gala is our premier fundraising event. Held at the Old Daley on Crooked Lake, the November gala offers an opportunity to publicly acknowledge and celebrate students, community volunteers, and educators while raising funds to secure the future of our important mission. 

During the event, awards are presented, honoring educators and volunteers dedicated to making our school district an exceptional place to learn and grow. An annual ARTWALK and musical performances by the APHS Jazz Ensemble combine to create a festive and fun evening while showcasing the creativity and diversity of many talented Averill Park students.

Proceeds from the Gala in the form of ticket sales, sponsorships, financial donations, and contributions of auction items from businesses and individuals allow APEF to continue to support innovative educational initiatives and teacher enrichment grants and offer students monetary scholarships.

We invite your participation by supporting this critical fundraising event through ticket sales, financial contributions, and donations of goods and services. Thank you.


"Receiving the Averill Park Education Foundation scholarship has been an absolute honor. I am incredibly grateful for this remarkable opportunity that has not only alleviated the burden of tuition fees but has also served as a powerful affirmation of my hard work and dedication. Thanks to the support of the Averill Park Education Foundation, I am now more motivated than ever to excel academically and make a meaningful impact in my field of study. I extend my heartfelt appreciation to the foundation for their unwavering commitment to empowering students and investing in their future."
