Since its inception, the Caldwell-West Caldwell Education Foundation has had an exceptionally positive impact on the students in our community. The Foundation has been a close partner with the school district, providing leadership and energy in the vital mission of educating our youth. The Foundation has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to our district’s classrooms, allowing our educators to provide students with experiences they would otherwise have missed. Many of these projects funded by the Foundation have proven to be so successful that they have spread throughout the school system and have become a regular part of our curriculum and instruction. Projects funded by the Foundation allow teachers and administrators to approach their work with a spirit of innovation and possibility, at a time when fiscal constraints can be challenging.
The activities of the Foundation, however, go far beyond providing additional funding for our school district. They send a clear message to our students that we want the best for them, and they send a clear message to our educators that they are highly valued as professionals. Events such as the Harlem Wizards game, the 5K Run, and the Golf Outing, moreover, serve as a means of bringing our community together in a spirit of fun and healthy interaction for a wonderful cause. They are indeed educational experiences in and of themselves. We are sincerely grateful to the phenomenal volunteers of the CWCEF for their countless hours of dedicated hard work, all for the benefit of our children.
