CONNECT! INNOVATE! INSPIRE! – CELEBRATING 22 YEARS
Dear Parents, Alumni and Friends,
The Ewing Public Education Foundation (EPEF) celebrates its 22 plus years of providing grants to Ewing Public Schools for innovative educational programs. Established in 1995, EPEF is an independent, not-for-profit citizens’ organization whose mission is to mobilize community support, concern, commitment and resources to help improve the quality of education in Ewing Township. EPEF provides financial grants to The Ewing Public Schools and allocates scholarships to graduating Ewing High School graduates through fund-raising activities, corporate and institutional sponsorship, and vital individual donations. The Foundation also seeks to match corporate and organizational donors with teachers to find additional projects of mutual interest. These programs enhance our children’ educational experience without the use of additional taxpayer dollars. The grants and scholarships recognize the need for innovative educational opportunities in a variety of areas, inspires the creativity of our educators in meeting these needs, and help to connect EHS graduates’ dreams of attending higher education. Community and corporate partners’, educators and alumni’, parents, family and friends’ support are crucial to the ongoing success of EPEF’s mission.
In May 2018, EPEF awarded 25 grants totaling $32,579. The past seven years, the Foundation awarded 170 grants totaling $237,932 to help teachers engage and inspire students. During the June 2018 EHS Awards Night, EPEF awarded well-earned scholarships totaling $6,000 to graduating EHS students seeking higher education. In 2015, EPEF collaborated with Educational Testing Service (ETS) and Ewing Township to spearhead creation of the Hollowbrook Computer Learning Center, which was closed due to repairs and abatement. The center reopened with a May 2018 grand opening with access to computers stations, computer classes and lab hours, and free public Wi-Fi in a state-of-the-art facility with twenty Chromebox computer stations, printing capabilities, a teacher station, and two BrightLink Interactive Projectors.
The Foundation is a founding member of the New Jersey Education Foundation Partnership and a member of the Mercer Regional Chamber of Commerce. The Foundation’s success depends upon all members of the community: educators, businesses, families, friends, and alumni.
