ABSAF, the Acton-Boxborough Student Activities Fund, is a 501c(3) non-profit, charitable organization that supports extracurricular activities at the Acton-Boxborough Regional Schools.

ABSAF members believe that extracurricular activities help to develop well-rounded children with healthy self-esteem. Members believe an entire community benefits when its youth are engaged in constructive activities. The goal is to offer each student at least one channel for his or her interests or talents, and over 85% of students currently participate.

Whether students are interested in music, sports, academic teams, theater, speech and debate or community service, they should have the opportunity to participate in programs that provide constructive and creative outlets.

ABSAF conducts both an annual mail campaign and a student phonathon in the fall. Contributions are greatly appreciated at any time during the year.


Since its inception in 1981, ABSAF has donated well over $1,000,000 to the Acton-Boxborough Regional Schools.

ABSAF was able to prevent the need for activity fees until 1993, at which time they became necessary. However, ABSAF contributions are still critical to maintain our quality extracurricular programs. Without ABSAF’s donations, activity fees would be higher and/or some activities would be eliminated.

ABSAF has consistently received generous, broad-based support from members of the Acton-Boxborough community since it was established.
