With the Skaneateles Education Foundation already established as the primary conduit for individuals, foundations and businesses to invest in targeted programs and projects in the school district, it was a natural fit for the two organizations to collaborate. ”We will accomplish more working together,” said Patti Carey, President of SEF. “In this case, we hope one plus one will equal three,” Soderberg said.
Former residents of Skaneateles, the Soderbergs still have family in town and have maintained a strong tie to the community in recent years by donating money for the construction of the community center the Skaneateles Festival and other local causes.
