Our mission is to support an academic environment that inspires our students and community to embrace a lifelong love of learning.
Letter from AEF President, Janie Hutchinson
This year, 2014, is a milestone year as the Auburn Education Foundation marks its 10th anniversary. The desire of a small group of concerned citizens has blossomed into a vibrant partnership connecting our schools and our community.
Yet, today’s economic reality is that teachers and administrators are being asked to do more with reduced budgets, increased mandates and an ever challenging and uncertain economic climate. These escalating burdens result in less time and money for what really matters--- inspiring our school children to love learning.
To a large degree, this is the role of the Auburn Education Foundation. Through our fundraising efforts and community partnerships, AEF enhances the classroom experience by supporting new technologies, innovative learning experiences, and community-school collaborations. We are supporting programs that can inspire our students to love learning and become responsible citizens.
As a 1st grade teacher of 30 years, I have seen the difference AEF makes in our schools. Last year alone, AEF awarded more than $18,000 in Educator Grants. One such grant is described below. Over the last five years some $84,000 in grants benefitting 8,000 students have been awarded. Yet the need remains great.
I invite you to join me in supporting Auburn Education Foundation by making a gift that supports the lasting benefits of a quality education. Or if your business would like to become an event sponsor, please call our office at (315) 255-8827.
AEF Board President
