Our Journey

  • The Westfield Education Foundation is a 501c(3) not for profit entity created in 1986 to serve as a philanthropic resource to provide scholarships to Westfield seniors and to provide grants to Westfield teachers. In 2021, the Foundation awarded $55,200 to seniors at Westfield Washington High School. WEF has now awarded 1.3 million dollars in college scholarships and classroom teaching grants in Westfield Washington Schools. We are run by a volunteer Board of Directors consisting of community members, business owners, parents, and school administrators and we have one paid staff member.

    Together, we are the key to our children's education.

    Through community partnerships, the Foundation can provide resources that will enrich and enhance teaching and learning in Westfield Washington Schools and promote lifelong learners. The Foundation would like to thank Community First Bank of Indiana for stepping up as our first 2021-2022 Grant Community Partner.   If you know of businesses or contacts we should contact, please let us know.

    • Wellness/Mental Health

    • Math/Science/Social Studies

    • Innovation/Arts

    Grants will be awarded at the end of September for funds to be used during the 2021-2022 school year.  Funds not deployed by May 1, 2022, will be returned to the Foundation.  The application deadline is Thursday, September 9th, at 5:00 pm.

Mission:

  • The mission of the Westfield Education Foundation (WEF) is to empower and invest in our students, teachers, and staff. Scholarships and Grants provide opportunities through generous community partner resources, which could help drive the future of Westfield.

    The Foundation was established in 1986 to assist with funding that would enrich the opportunities for our Westfield community. Donating to the WEF allows for the Foundation to support the needs of our students and staff as curriculum evolves and our community grows.
