Red Bank Borough Education Foundation
The Red Bank Borough Education Foundation (RBBEF) believes that all students deserve an equal opportunity to reach their potential. The Foundation strives to serve all students by providing additional financial support to enhance their educational experience.
The Foundation’s goal is to serve the Red Bank Borough school community with a shared vision toward excellence and enhancement of the educational experience with special emphasis on the Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) curriculum but not to the exclusion of language and performing arts, social sciences, and physical education. The Foundation will generate and distribute funds to encourage new approaches to learning, to deliver enrichment opportunities and to provide mini grants to teachers for highly motivating classroom programs.
- Establish and maintain a plan for fund generation as well as general criteria for distribution of funds. Funds may be raised by personal and business donations. Grant searches and grant management procedures will be of prime importance.
- Identify worthy projects.
- Support professional and curriculum development for such projects.
Current funding project - arts programs.
