The Wallingford Education Foundation (WEF) is committed to improving opportunities for students and teachers one grant at a time. Over $200,000 has been raised and awarded for this purpose. Each March, educators are encouraged to apply for one of two grants: the Educational Impact Grant or the Professional Development Grant. The WEF distributes on average $10,000 annually in grants to Wallingford teachers. Additionally, through its Signature Projects campaign, the WEF supports large dollar requests from the Wallingford school district.
Each year WEF awards several grants ranging from $500 to $5,000.
Multiple $2,000 grants are awarded annually for staff members to attend conferences.
WEF has helped fund projects representing over $120,000 in raised campaigns.
