WCEF Announces 2018 Educator Grant Awards

The Woburn Community Educational Foundation is pleased to announce our 2018 grant awards to support exciting new projects in the Woburn Public Schools.  Through the generosity of our community, $19,012 was granted to support 22 diverse classroom-based, whole-school and district-wide initiatives designed to engage students in interactive learning.  These funds will purchase innovative learning tools, provide professional development opportunities for teachers, deliver classroom technology enhancements and new educational enrichment programs, all to support the academic success of today’s students.

“We were truly impressed by the quality of the proposals we received this year,” comments WCEF Executive Director Maureen Willis, “These requests reflect the real needs of our schools and the commitment of our educators to provide high-quality and meaningful learning experiences for all our students.  We are proud to support their great ideas.”

Special thanks to Reading Cooperative Bank for providing sponsorship support for the Educator Grants Program for the second consecutive year.  We are also grateful for the increased investment by Winning Home Foundation in the potential of Woburn students; this partnership support will fund eight of the grants awarded this year.

WCEF is a nonprofit organization formed to increase private investment and community involvement in the Woburn Public Schools.  Grant funds support new projects that cannot be funded by the regular school budget. WCEF raises funds in the community through our spring Awesome Teacher Tribute and fall Women’s Forum event.  To help make a difference in our schools, contact WCEF at 781-281-9589 or email us at contactus@woburnedfoundation.org.
