The Cummings Foundation’s hallmark program is its annual $100K for 100 grant program, which WEF gratefully received in 2016.
WEF awarded grants totaling over $25,000 for the 2017-18 school year. Our goal is to continually raise funds to continue to provide such exciting grants, which this fall included:
"The Wakefield Educational Foundation has been a tremendous partner and resource to the Wakefield Public Schools. WEF provides grant funding for innovative projects, enrichment programs, and needed materials for our schools. The resources received through these grants allow our teachers to enrich our students’ learning experiences. Over the years the Greenwood School has been the recipient of funding for our AuthorFest Week which allows us to bring authors and illustrators into school to share their craft with our young aspiring authors. Classroom teachers have been able to enhance science curriculum bringing scientists and science programs into our school. Our classroom libraries have been supported through WEF grants. We could not provide such enriching experiences for our students without the incredible support of the Wakefield Education Foundation! On behalf of the Greenwood School community we thank you for your continued commitment and dedication to our school."
