ABOUT THE REF
The Ringwood Educational Foundation was started in 1993 by former members of the Ringwood Board of Education. In 1999, a group of concerned, highly motivated Ringwood citizens resurrected the Foundation. Since then, the Foundation has supported a wide range of teacher projects, such as World Book On-Line, The Renaissance Faire, Incubators for Hatching Chicks, Handwriting Without Tears, Hands-On Science, Computer Laptops, and many more exciting programs throughout the Ringwood District.
The REF maintains a 15-20 member Board of Trustees volunteering their efforts to fundraising on behalf of the Ringwood School District. We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that supplements existing curriculum within the Ringwood School system through teacher submitted grant requests.
Striving towards excellence, the mission of the Ringwood Educational Foundation is to enhance and enrich the public educational experience of all our students. Together with the community, we aim to keep our schools ready for tomorrow.
