The Monterey High School Digital Arts Program started a fundraiser in mid-May to purchase several iPad Pro's for the MHS Digital Arts Program. This amazing technology was needed to allow Advanced Digital Art students to develop industry-level job skills and compete in college applications and contests, and it is especially needed now that they are all in Distance Learning!
MHS Digital Arts Program was able to raise 50% of their goal and had a deadline of September 11. Harry Singer Foundation matched the funds and met the deadline.
"Dear Mr. Kaplan, I really can't express how deeply touched we are by your extreme generosity. The students and I had almost given up on succeeding with our campaign, when you swooped in with your lifesaving donation! To have such great news come at the beginning of our school year has lifted the spirits of myself, my 200 students (this year) our high school (1200 students) and our district (10,000 students)!! The kids and I are on "Cloud Nine", I am not kidding you. We are doing "happy dances" all the time. Your timely, generous action makes us all feel like "someone out there CARES!" and that makes all the difference during this challenging time! Your kindness will brighten hearts and minds for many years to come. I have the most creative, wonderful students, and these creative devices allow them to express from their hearts - animations, music, movies, illustrations, etc. We really are so very, very grateful!!! Much love, Ms. Martha Tonkin" MHS Digital Arts Teacher

Ayeseminikan BSE, Ken-ade, Founder/Director
HSF is a proud sponsor of Ken-Ade Schools, Lago, Nigeria. Founded by Ayeseminikan BSE, Ken-ade PrivateSecondary School mission is to provide students with excellent academic programs and a nurturing environment with close student-teacher relationships. Secondary School is a private yet affordable elementary school offering a stimulating curriculum and a supportive environment to ensure their students experience success every day.
Ken-Ade is home to over 700 students (aged 12 to 16) and 100 expert staff, and proud of their international and multi-cultural ethos.
Over 15 years ago in a small classroom with a dirt floor, Ayeseminikan BSE started Ken-Ade Private School. Harry Singer Foundation was there at the beginning to help launch this small but much needed school. Over the years the school grew to several locations. Then, in 2013, a devastating typhoon hit Lagos, Nigeria and the school was destroyed. HSF provided support to help rebuild the school and after three weeks, classes resumed becoming Ken-Ade Schools. HSF continues to be a proud sponsor. Check out their website:
