Why an Education Foundation?
Funding for public education is becoming increasingly limited by the constraints of Act 1 and state legislature. While continuing to look for efficiencies within the budget, the district recognizes the importance of looking for outside funding streams and community initiatives to help fund programs that are on the fringe of general fund expenditures. As a community partner, the Wissahickon Educational Opportunities Foundation has the opportunity to step in and create an alternative funding stream for innovative programs that support student learning.
Ways to Give
Individuals, families, and companies may make annual gifts to support our mission. There are several levels to support the Wissahickon Educational Opportunities Foundation (WEOF): one-time or recurring gifts, staff tribute, directed/restricted giving, EITC tax credit program, individual/corporate matching grants and donations, designation via Amazon Smile, and more!Learn More
