Our Mission
WMEF is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to providing a challenging and enriching educational experience to students of the Township's public school system.  Our programs and activities assist our schools to expand their curriculum and modernize their offerings.   We accomplish this by:

  • Engaging the community and corporate donors to provide and sustain district-wide opportunities for educational excellence;
  • Providing grants, valuable enrichment programs and educational resources that could not have been funded through our existing school budget;
  • Encouraging teacher innovation and teaching excellence.
