The Ed. Foundation: Opportunity Delivered.
The History of The Ed. Foundation
In 2002, community advocate Amy Bass assembled a group of volunteers to form an education foundation with the goal of making a difference in the experience of students in Port Washington. The following spring, the PWEF awarded its first grants, totaling $20,329, to fund 18 projects ranging from an oral history study at Schreiber to math literacy workshops at the elementary schools. Since then, hundreds of grants have been awarded in every school, at every grade level, in every subject area, totaling well over 1.5 million dollars.
A marketing effort in the spring of 2015 rebranded the PWEF as The Ed. Foundation with a new name, new logo, and a new look. While the Foundation has grown tremendously, the mission remains the same: supporting initiatives beyond basic educational needs and enhancing educational opportunities for all students in the Port Washington public school district.
