EPEF Welcome Back Letter to the School Community for 2021-2022:
CONNECT! INNOVATE! INSPIRE! – CELEBRATING 25 YEARS!
Dear Parents, Guardians, Alumni, Students and Friends,
The Ewing Public Education Foundation (EPEF) celebrates 25 years of providing grants to Ewing Public Schools for innovative educational programs. EPEF is an independent, non-profit organization whose mission is to mobilize community support, commitment, and resources to help improve the quality of education in Ewing Public Schools. The Foundation also seeks to match corporate organizational donors with teachers to find additional projects of mutual interest.
EPEF provides grants to teachers and staff members and allocates scholarships to graduating Ewing High School students through fund-raising activities, corporate and institutional sponsorship, and individual donations. These programs enhance our children’s educational experience without the use of additional taxpayer dollars. The grants recognize the need for innovative educational opportunities in a variety of areas, inspiring the creativity of our educators and enabling them to engage the students in exciting and different ways. Scholarships provide the graduating seniors from EHS to continue their educational endeavors in colleges, universities or vocational institutions.
As we continue to navigate through these challenging times, EPEF has stayed steadfast to our mission by providing grants to educators’ innovative programs regardless of the pandemic. In the past ten years, the Foundation has awarded 208 grants totaling $291,789 and in 2021 awarded $8,000 in scholarships to our graduating EHS students.
The Foundation is a founding member of the New Jersey Education Foundation Partnership and a member of the Mercer Regional Chamber of Commerce.
EPEF continues to expand its assistance to teachers, staff members, and students with the support of individuals, businesses and corporate sponsors. Our success depends on your contribution. Your contribution of $25 or more will allow us to expand our commitment to the educators and students of the Ewing Public Schools.
