The Nutley Educational Foundation, Inc. was founded in 2003 as a 501(c)3 not for profit organization established solely to provide funding to support educational endeavors in the Township of Nutley.The mission of the Nutley Educational Foundation, Inc. as approved by the NJ Department of State is: "To obtain and utilize alternative sources of funding for the Nutley Public School District, including facilities upgrading, curriculum development, instructional and professional development projects for the benefit of the Nutley Public School community and the Township of Nutley community." Our Board of Trustees looks for resources to help create and/or expand opportunities for our Nutley school children that would otherwise not be possible.
In the past we have been able to provide funding for the elementary school science programs (a Hoffman-La Roche donation) and to bring innovative technologies to these classrooms as well. We research corporate grants and identify other programs to fund our objectives. It is our hope to explore additional initiatives for funding that will prove advantageous to our school district. Nutley’s technological outlook is a huge undertaking financially but absolutely necessary to prepare our students for the future. Programs in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) require computers for every student. That’s a future goal that clearly is needed today. NEF can help in this endeavor and you can help NEF!
