As we grow as an organization, we are touching the lives of even more students with wonderfully innovative projects and initiatives. We’re constantly amazed by the creativity of the educators in our schools who continue to find ways to enrich the educational experience, even in difficult times. The future of education in our school district is bright, and we’re thrilled to play an important role in the process of inspiring education in Port.”

The Ed. Foundation has become a model and resource for educational foundations on Long Island. Founding Ed. Foundation president and president emerita, Amy G. Bass, is proud to see that The Ed. Foundation is continuing to thrive and remains committed to the success of the organization and the Port schools. She noted, “As the Port Washington school district budget becomes tighter, I am thankful that we have a solid education foundation in place to offer supplemental funding to our school district in these tough economic times.”
