Helping to inspire education in Port Washington

Why Donate

The Ed. Foundation is an independent, not-for-profit, community-based organization. Our mission supports initiatives that are beyond basic educational requirements. With no paid staff and minimal administrative expenses, almost 100% of monies raised are donated to the Port Washington schools.

Since 2001, The Ed. Foundation has actively raised funds and awarded grants to enhance and expand educational opportunities for all students in the Port Washington Public Schools.

We appreciate your support at any level and hope you will help us continue to inspire education in Port Washington.
