Show your Gratitude to a Special Teacher

A donation to the Needham Education Foundation is a wonderful way to let teachers and staff in your child’s life know how much you appreciate their hard work. By making a donation to the NEF in the name of a special teacher, you are showing them your gratitude while also providing vital support for the funding of teachers’ innovative ideas and professional development opportunities through NEF grants. Your gift helps make learning come alive!

Cards are $10 each — choose from two designs and two ways to give!

Two Ways to Purchase Cards

This year, we’ve made it easier than ever to show your appreciation of your children’s teachers. With Option A, we are introducing Gratitude Grams. These e-cards can be ordered online, personalized with a message from your family, and sent directly to the recipient’s email. With Option B, we are continuing to offer traditional greeting cards, Gratitude Greetings, available at four local stores.

Option A: Gratitude Grams

Order Gratitude Gram e-cards anytime year round to show your gratitude and NEF will send the cards to the recipients with your personalized message on your behalf.

Option B: Gratitude Greetings

Purchase Gratitude Greeting cards at Proud Mary, Volante Farms, and the Roche Bros & Sudbury Farms Courtesy Desks for you to personalize and give directly to the recipients.
