The Edfund Mission
The Hamilton Wenham Education Fund is an independent, non-profit organization committed to advancing educational excellence in the Hamilton Wenham regional schools.
Building on the Past & Celebrating 20 years
The Edfund has a rich 20-year history and long legacy of support for our public schools. Established as a community initiative in 1990 with the principal goal of building a permanent endowment fund to perpetually support our public schools, we have built a strong foundation for their benefit. The vision of our founding members and your contributions over the past two decades have enabled the Edfund to fulfill its commitment to advancing educational excellence.
Making a Difference Today
The Edfund is a community of volunteers led by a board of directors consisting of 20 residents from Hamilton and Wenham. As outlined in our new Strategic Plan, the Edfund will be a leader in focusing community involvement and collaboration to advance education in our public schools. We sponsor "fun" and "fund" raising events throughout the year to build spirit and broaden participation in the community. The Edfund is a community effort, supported by hundreds of contributors and volunteers, local businesses and family foundations. We depend on support from people like you!
Planning for Tomorrow
The Edfund, through its Strategic Plan, will be enhancing its grant-making process to better enable our schools to access opportunities available to enrich the student experience. In addition to project specific grants, we are introducing a mini-grant program to provide smaller grants to faculty on a rolling basis. We will also expand our fundraising activities toward soliciting larger resources to fund these activities and continuing to build the endowment.
Thank You Hamilton and Wenham
The Edfund is powered by the contributions of dollars, time and commitment from residents of our two towns. Your contributions and involvement over the years have had a direct impact on the quality of education in our regional schools. This is what makes the Hamilton Wenham Edfund unique.
