    The West Milford Education Foundation is a non-profit organization whose mission is to focus money, resources and private sector commitment to benefit our public school children. The foundation provides grants for new programs, enhances the school district’s existing programs and curricula, and also provides equipment and materials that would not otherwise be available to our schools. The foundation is an autonomous tax-exempt organization, separate from the board of education. It is managed by West Milford residents who serve on the board of trustees and volunteer their time and efforts to achieve the mission. The foundation has been in existence since 1995.
