Our Foundation

We support academic enrichment in Long Hill Township. Because school budgets are more restrictive than ever, public schools now rely on private funding to support creative and engaging venues to help children learn.  Proceeds we raise  from donations and fundraisers go directly into programs, grants and sponsorships to enhance areas such as the arts, music, technology and more.

Mission and Vision

Our Education Foundation is a nonprofit dedicated to providing financial resources to maximize student potential in Long Hill School District.  We do this by providing educational programs, sponsoring speakers, holding events,  as well as  funding  innovation and excellence by providing equipment, supplies and grants to our educators.
