Rochester Education Foundation
is an independent, not-for-profit organization providing resources, programs and partnerships to
encourage the success of Rochester city students. REF:
- Provides music opportunities
for students - we have given more than 1500 musical instruments to be used by city
students since the launch of our Spring for Music program in 2005.
Instruments are given to us by generous
community members. We also support summer music lessons, support attendance at musical
performances and more.
- Supports literacy through our
Teachers’ Choice program, through which Rochester educators apply for up to 200 new books
to be used for book clubs and other creative activities, and then donated to students for home
- Coordinates FAFSA Fest
community events, where free help is offered to students and their families filling out
and submitting their college financial aid forms. Provide college tours to 10th graders and a
regional college website with valuable information: Rochestercan.org

the Wilson Outdoors Club, The Dr. Walter Cooper Academy School 10
Fund and One Step Closer fund providing sneakers to
students in need.
