Scarsdale Adult School E-News

December 2023

Season of Giving

For 85 years, SAS has been offering a wide range of courses, programs, and events to help adults of all ages broaden their perspectives and explore new topics. We could not have done so without the generous support of our community of lifelong learners.

As the calendar year draws to a close, we hope you will consider making a tax-deductible donation to our annual fundraising campaign to ensure the future of the Scarsdale Adult School. No contribution is too small. All will be acknowledged with a heartfelt thank you for your support and belief in the power of education and community!
