WEF's Impact


For the past thirty years, through the generous donations of our donors, WEF has funded grants to educators in the Wellesley Public Schools System. In the past 10 years alone, WEF has awarded over $1.6 million in grants and assistance.

We have shown our commitment to Wellesley Public Schools by funding programs that enhance or support the curriculum. For example, we have funded equipment and instructional materials for math, science and language art programs. We have also funded author visits to the schools and creative writing workshops.

WEF also believes in the value of keeping our teachers trained and up-to-date on the newest innovations in teaching. With this goal in mind, we have funded professional development courses for our teachers, such as “Teachers as Scholars”, “Skillful Teaching”, “Understanding the Whole Boys Curriculum”, and “Children’s Literature Summer Institute”.
