Who We Are
The mission of the Westfield Foundation for Education is to inspire the students of Westfield Public Schools through funding of innovative education and enrichment opportunities that extend beyond the resources of the City of Westfield. Westfield Foundation for Education (WFE) is an all-volunteer organization, established in 2013 with the goal of providing Westfield schoolchildren with robust, challenging educational experiences in mathematics, sciences, athletics, and the humanities. Incorporated in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and an IRS approved 501(c)3 organization, Westfield Foundation for Education operates independently from the Westfield school department. The Foundation is a non-political entity. Representatives from the School Committee, City of Westfield School department, local business owners and community members serve as volunteers.

What We Do
The Foundation supports academic enrichment and project-based learning opportunities in Westfield Public Schools that are not included in the city’s budget. Through privately raised funds, WFE will award grants to teachers and community members inspired to bring innovative school-based projects to Westfield schools.
Why We Do It
Enrichment and project based learning opportunities for teachers and students of Westfield Public Schools are limited due to budget cuts and reduced state aid. WFE seeks to support Westfield schoolchildren by providing financial tools to teachers to enhance the classroom experience. We believe academic opportunities should be available to all students and each success brings us one step closer to that goal.
