Students: The Heart & Future of our Community
Every day a teacher, a bus driver, a guidance counselor or perhaps a school nurse goes above and beyond the call of duty, making a positive and lasting impact in a student’s life by offering special attention, extraordinary compassion, support and guidance.
The Worcester County Education Foundation (WCEF) is launching an annual appeal that allows business owners, parents, grandparents and high school alumni to recognize a school, teacher or anyone in the education field who has impacted a child’s life. Hearing the words “thank you” from a student or their loved ones is more meaningful than any other type of award or accolade they ever receive. Saying, “Thank you”, with a tax deductible contribution to HONOR OUR SCHOOLS ANNUAL APPEAL in honor of a school, a teacher or staff member, not only pays tribute to great educators and role models who have made a difference in a student’s life but every dollar raised will help provide essential resources needed for teachers and students in our schools.
The school that a donor honors will be sent an acknowledgement letter. A message of appreciation will also be shared with the faculty and staff as well as the community through the WCEF website, newsletters and annual reports. The gift amount will be kept confidential.
Excellence in education is the greatest responsibility of our society, fostering prosperity for future generations. We ask that you consider making a financial donation, joining the Foundation’s effort to expedite the Digital Conversion of our Worcester County Public schools, allowing every student K-12, equal access to vital digital devices for a proper education.
