Since our beginning, the Foundation has existed solely to support educational needs within the 27J School District through grants for projects and student scholarships. In 2013, the Foundation added teacher continuing education scholarships as well.
Over the years, the foundation has awarded in excess of $214,000 in funding, including:
- $127,000 for project grants
- $83,500 for student scholarships
- $4,000 for teacher continuing education scholarships
We have two signature fundraisers annually—an Annual Luncheon, usually in late spring or early summer where we recognize businesses and individuals for their contributions in support of the educational needs of our community. In the fall, we hold a golf tournament which offers opportunities to participate as a sponsor, player, or volunteer.
Additionally, we partner with area businesses and organizations including local restaurants, entertainment venues, the Greater Brighton Chamber of Commerce, and more, to offer various opportunities and events where a portion of the proceeds benefit the 27J Education Foundation.
We could not accomplish all that we do without the support and participation of our community!
