Our Foundation

We support academic enrichment in Long Hill Township.

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.
