The mission of the Englewood Education Foundation is to generate and distribute resources to Englewood Schools to enrich, maintain, and expand programs needed to meet the District's stated mission of excellence in education.
The Englewood Education Foundation was created in May, 1990 to assist students in advancing their learning opportunities after graduating from Englewood Public Schools. In addition to scholarships, one of the Foundation's goals has been to ensure teachers in our community are able to foster creative approaches to education by providing private support for educational activities in Englewood Public Schools. The Foundation has been run by a volunteer Board of Directors made up of business, community, and educational leaders in our community who share a vision of enhancing education in Englewood schools. There have been numerous board members since the inception of the foundation in 1990, with 9 Board members currently operating the foundation to assist in raising and distributing funds to students and teachers in Englewood.
"The scholarship I received from the Englewood Education Foundation made it possible for me to get the computer I needed for school. I'm a computer science major, so this computer was the only school supply I needed. Without the scholarship and the computer, I wouldn't be able to do my classwork."
-Jon H., Colorado State University, Scholarship Recipient
"I'm starting school on Monday at Arapahoe Community College. Without the scholarship from Englewood Education Foundation, I would not have been able to attend college at all. I plan to become a nurse."

"The grant we received from Englewood Education Foundation ensures our 6th grade families pay only what they can afford for their student to attend a 3-day camp at Keystone Science School. Most of our 6th graders will never have the opportunity to attend summer camp and Keystone Science School offers a short opportunity for these students to have a science-based summer camp experience."

"The funding from the EEF to support Englewood Leadership Academy's Good Deeds Club has been so beneficial to the students and our community. We've used the funds to purchase books about kindness and have gone to preschools and elementary schools to read to the students and donate these books to their classrooms. The Creativity Grant is helping our group create student-generated projects to spread our mission of good deeds throughout our school, district and neighborhood. We are very grateful."
