As of August 2017 over $675,000 has been raised from donations secured by teams of volunteers charged with supporting the fund. These volunteers raise funds from family members, friends, coworkers and others, as well as through fundraising events with local businesses and restaurants.
By giving to Sid Feldman, you help enrich the educational opportunities of our students and ensure they are able to fulfill their dreams. Your contribution will have a lasting effect on the lives of students for generations to come.
