The Mission of the Needham Education Foundation

The Needham Education Foundation (NEF) raises funds and awards grants to promote innovation and excellence in education for Needham public school students. By funding leading-edge programs that are outside of normal and expected public funding, the NEF enhances the curriculum and provides an important means for teachers, parents and students to learn, experiment and explore.

History of the NEF

A $3000 donation in 1990 was parlayed into an impactful organization committed to making learning come alive for all Needham Public School students.
