Support ASEF

The Ayer Shirley Education Foundation (ASEF) is a volunteer-based, non-profit charitable organization committed to augmenting the educational excellence in the Ayer Shirley Regional School District (ASRSD) by providing additional funds and resources via private and corporate donations. The Ayer Shirley Education Foundation operates independently of the Ayer Shirley Regional School District's budget. It maintains an independent Board of Directors - open to community members, educators, business leaders and parent volunteers -- who set the strategic course for the foundation.

Individual donations

Your tax-deductible donation to the Ayer Shirley Education Foundation helps fund teachers and programs in the Ayer Shirley Regional School District. Every gift, no matter how large or small, makes a difference. The Ayer Shirley Education Foundation is a tax-exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Donations are tax deductible. Thank you for your support.
