We provide grants to East Greenwich Educators
The EGEF is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that promotes excellence in public education by providing grants to educators to fund creative, innovative and sustainable initiatives in the classroom. The Foundation supports educational programs at all six public schools in East Greenwich.
We engage the community
We work closely with the schools, administration, teachers, parents, and others in pursuit of our mission. Through our events and campaigns, we spread awareness and raise funds for our grants. Excellence in public education isn’t free, and your support is a powerful investment in our future. We thank all the families, friends, educators, and community members who share in our vision for the children of East Greenwich.
We award grants to provide additional opportunities
The EGEF funds initiatives that enhance classroom learning through innovative approaches to teaching. We support all areas of the curriculum, including math, science, social studies, English, reading, language, health, art, music and more. Key objectives of the Foundation include piloting promising programs, and supporting their replication throughout the school district.
We look for three qualities in a project: innovation, creativity, and sustainability. The EGEF encourages collaboration among teachers, paraprofessionals, parents, principals, educators from other school districts, and the community in order to generate new ideas for programs and classroom initiatives.
