The Trenton Educational Foundation was established in 2008 by a group of community leaders who recognized that the quality of an educational system, and the vitality of the community it serves, are intertwined. These residents want to ensure the continued success of our current students, as well as that of future generations. The Foundation’s mission is to help achieve and maintain an extra margin of excellence by employing private resources to supplement traditional school funding.
Our focus is on encouraging excellence through creative teaching, facilitating student development, and fostering community/school partnerships. The Foundation will fund major projects, but it also will enable faculty members to undertake a number of innovative classroom projects at all grade levels by awarding numerous “mini” and “collaborative” grants. Funds from the Foundation will be used to support six core areas of education.
Spring Grant applications will be opening soon. Stay tuned.
