Education for the Children Foundation continues to award multiple teacher grants even in trying times. Through the tireless fundraising efforts of the EFC board and the generous donations from the local community, a large amount was granted to six local schools.
This year, over $70,000 was awarded. Each school had several items requested; some of the items that were granted are listed below.

The board carefully evaluates the requests and grants the money based on need and dollar amount. Donations made to Education for the Children Foundation through its events like the Family Fun 5K, the popular spring event, and private donations help make these grants possible and help every student now and years to come.
EFC thanks the community for their help in preserving the excellence in our children’s education. If you would like to stay tuned about future grants and how the organization is helping the schools, please go to EFC’s website at www.educationforthechildren.org and request to be on their email list.
