The Wissahickon Educational Opportunities Foundation is a non-profit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) community based organization that supports the Wissahickon School District. Since 1992, the Foundation’s goal is to provide funding and support for innovative, educational programs which are not within the school’s traditional budget or curriculum and create no additional burden to the taxpayer. These programs enrich the experiences of students, teachers and residents of our community. Proposals are submitted by faculty and building Principals.
Grants awarded have supported all levels and subjects in education across the learning spectrum in all of the Wissahickon schools. Technology, STEM initiatives, reading programs, arts and music, physical education and anti-bullying programs are just a few of the many programs WEOF supports. Funds are raised through private donations, EITC grants from participating businesses, staff tributes and fundraising events. Your donations allow the foundation to achieve its mission. Truly, it is community support that puts the “WE” in WEOF.
Grants are competitive and application requests are considered at each board meeting throughout the school year. Grants are available to all educators and staff in the Wissahickon School District.
