The Foundation will be launching a fund raising effort in fall with the intent of adding to the number of grants to our local teachers. Fundraising mailings will publicize our Motto, Mission, and Message to the entire Watertown community so that more grant monies will be available. The intent of the Educational Foundation of Watertown is to give financial aid to teachers, both public and private, which will enable them to benefit the students by supplementing a classroom need, technology, or unique project.

Our hope is that we will be able to match applications with available funding to allow the Foundation to reward a larger number of teachers and impact more classrooms. Highest consideration is given to applications indicating both continuing value and multi-year student participation. We do look at uniqueness of student learning activities but also want to benefit more than just a “single” group of students. Questions or Comments? Click Here.
