The Delran Education Foundation, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, was formed early in 2015 with the support of the Delran Board of Education and the district’s superintendent. (Although the Foundation has the district’s support, we operate independently.) The Foundation was modeled after other local education foundations, such as the Medford Education Foundation, the Moorestown Education Foundation and the Mount Laurel Public Education Fund, all of which have provided significant financial support to their respective districts.
Why an Education Foundation
New Jersey schools face constant funding challenges. While operating costs are increasing rapidly, government funding is decreasing. With such tight resources, school districts are often unable to fund the kinds of innovative programs that would develop and enhance skills necessary for success in the 21st century.
In order to combat these financial strains, the Foundation raises money from local businesses, corporate sponsors, parents, alumni, and other supporters throughout the community. These contributions are used to support educationally sound, cutting-edge programs designed to better prepare Delran students for the rapidly-changing world.
