Since its founding, the Marshfield Education Foundation has awarded over $1.1 million in support of 204 grants across the Marshfield Public School district. Grants impact every student in every school in the district. STEM, the Arts, English Language Learning (ELL), Diversity Equity and Inclusion, and Physical Fitness were common themes running through grant requests from the Marshfield Public School educators for the 2023-2024. The grant requests very much speak to the time we are in and what is important to the students, teachers, and faculty of the Marshfield Public School District.
On average, after a thorough review process, fifteen individual grants are awarded each year. This past year we exceeded the average, awarding 24 grants in total. The impact the grants have on the students and school district is lasting, over 77% of programs funded are still active five years later. Marshfield Education Foundation is proud of its significant impact on our community and grateful to our many donors who have made it possible.
