Marlboro Educational Foundation
The Marlboro Educational Foundation, founded in January 2000, is a private, non-profit organization that operates independently from the school district. It is comprised of Marlboro residents and business people dedicated to raising much-needed funds for innovative and creative programs not covered in the general school budget. Money is awarded to K-8 teachers via small and large grants offered each school year. A peer review commit- tee screens each application to determine eligibility for receipt of these grants.
Since its inception, the Foundation has raised over $400,000 and has awarded hundreds of grants to teachers throughout the district, enabling them to bring guest speakers, artists, and programs related to all subject areas to the students.
The Marlboro Educational Foundation supports our district in so many ways. The mission of the foundation is to promote and provide educational opportunities through innovative programs and projects. The Foundation encourages excellence through creative learning and teaching. The Foundation directly supports our Creativity and Innovation Initiative.
