Change The world

what is shef's purpose?

SHEF provides the resources and funding to assist students and staff of the South Huntington School District to realize their fullest potential and achieve success.

The goal of SHEF is to work with the entire community, with emphasis on the parents, students and local businesses to assist with the funding of projects and programs that support and enhance the district’s initiatives in all areas, including arts, science, and technology.  This will provide the innovative tools students need to be college and career ready, creating the leaders of tomorrow.  

SHEF is a not-for-profit 501c(3) established in 1994 that provides both resources and funding to assist the more than 6,000 students and staff of the South Huntington UFSD.

What They Say?


I’m very grateful for the organizers and the administration that oversees the Miles for Michael race at the SHUFSD to add the Challenged Athlete Division this year! It sends out such a powerful message of inclusion, participation and acceptance to members of our community. Special thanks to Dr. David Bennardo and Ms. Sheila Buhse for considering my request and making it happen!

Thanks to a generous donation from SHEF, a new Coding Club has started at Walt Whitman High School. I’m excited to get more people involved and to have fun with computer science.

As an alumni and now a SHUFSD parent, I attended the SHEF Gala, which was a great way to celebrate our wonderful school community. Thank You to SHEF for all that you do to support the high quality education of our South Huntington students! While there, I entered raffles and won a certificate for my son to attend a Wildcat Camp of his choice over the summer. In the words of my son, "Thank You SHEF! Wildcat camp was really fun and we even got to play mini golf!
