Who are we?

Established in 2003, the Upper Saddle River Educational Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) charitable non-profit community-based organization that seeks to enrich and enhance the scholastic and cultural programs of district students in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade. Funds raised through our annual event are used to fulfill grants submitted by school faculty as well as for capital investments in technology.

Upper Saddle River Education Foundation’s Annual Town Night Out will be held on March 11, 2022.  USREF is seeking sponsorships of the event, donations of decorations, and prizes for the silent auction and raffle.  Your tax-deductible contribution is greatly appreciated and directly benefits the children attending the Upper Saddle River public schools.
