The Foundation is a community sponsored, non-profit, 501(c)(3) charitable organization run by volunteers. The Westwood Educational Foundation, Inc., now doing business as (DBA) Foundation for Westwood Education, was founded in 1991 to support high quality education in our public schools and enhance learning opportunities for all Westwood residents.   We partner with residents and local businesses to raise funds and return those funds to the community in the form of educational grants. Through our grant awards, we invest in innovative, inspiring and meaningful educational and cultural programs provided by Westwood public schools and community organizations.

Board Members

The Foundation is run entirely by a board of volunteer members, who come from a cross section of schools and community groups in Westwood. These volunteers raise money and award grants that benefit our community.  Founded over 25 years ago, the Foundation continues a tradition of enriching the Westwood community.
