Grants are the core of the Foundation's mission, as they provide essential programs and resources that fall beyond state mandates. The abundant workload required to run the Foundation, its fundraising initiatives and programs is undertaken by volunteer parents and community members, in collaboration with EFS faculty members and administrators. 

We are beholden to and extremely grateful for the financial contributions made my Essex Fells families and community members. To donate, please click here. Grants approved over the past years are listed below.
