Sports and Arts in Schools Foundation (SASF)

SASF is a major provider of afterschool programming to thousands of students throughout NYC.  Its High School Today, College Tomorrow  provides hands-on assistance to help high achieving juniors and seniors navigate the overwhelming college application process. Meringoff funding supports a new Academic Leader at Flushing HS, who will counsel and mentor twenty high needs “Meringoff Fellows”.  

"I joined SASF at the beginning of my freshman year.  I started to join new activities, including hip-hop, step, and Latin Dance, and met so many new people.  SASF has not only helped me personally, but also academically.  I achieved grades that I never thought I could get, but that was possible because of the tutoring I received. This program has become such an important part of my life, and I will miss SASF when I graduate this year."
