Framingham Education Foundation
The Framingham Education Foundation is a volunteer-based, non-profit organization committed to augmenting the educational excellence in the Framingham Public Schools.
With an office in the former Juniper Hill Elementary School, the Framingham Education Foundation funds innovative programs that enhance or reinforce the classroom curriculum.
The Foundation's biggest fundraiser annually is its Spelling Bee in November. In this adult team Bee, every dollar raised goes back into the schools.
The Foundation over sees a C.A.R.E program. C.A.R.E stands for Celebrate and Recognize Educators. Nominees can include an inspiring teacher, a caring nurse, an exceptional leader, etc. Individuals and organizations can make a donation to the Foundation through C.A.R.E in that person's name and the person will receive a certificate of appreciation.
The Foundation also runs a grant program. There are two rounds - March and October. Awards are announced in May and November. Only school professionals may submit proposals and qualify as Project Directors. Students, parents and community groups may collaborate with a Framingham Public School staff member on a grant application, as long as the project is educational.
