History and Governance

The SET SEG Foundation was established as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in 2005. It was created to enable students to pursue enrichment opportunities that advance learning, leadership, and civic responsibility by providing services, scholarships, grants and other forms of financial support directly to Michigan public schools. With the support of many generous donors, the Foundation has worked to achieve this mission. The SET SEG Foundation has been able to give back to Michigan public schools and has helped build brighter futures for thousands of students.
