The Mission of the Newburyport Education Foundation (NEF) is to bring philanthropy into the Newburyport Public Schools and generate financial resources that will enhance the quality of public education.
Founded in 2000, NEF seeks to enhance educational opportunities for the city’s 2,400 public school children, their teachers and their parents, by finding ways to supplement funding for programs that are currently supported by the basic public financing. When basic funding does not cover the costs of programs and facilities that need improvement, NEF’s goal is to secure additional private sector money to allow for improved curriculum and facilities. NEF also seeks to finance programs that add to the quality of the education offered in Newburyport, but may not be covered under traditional funding sources such as district budget or state aid.
