Making the Difference – Grants

The Wayne Township Education Foundation offers several grant opportunities – DonorsChoose.Org, Traditional Grants and Wayne Youth Fund Grants. Grants are a vehicle through which staff and/or students may receive funds to support materials, equipment and programs that will enrich the curriculum.

At the recent Wayne Township Education Foundation Board meeting, nearly $14,000 in innovative programs were approved.  These projects are teacher-led programs that bring the curriculum to life and help students and families make connections within Wayne Township.  Congratulations to WTEF’s most recent grant recipients…
