“Investing in the highest quality innovative programs to enhance the knowledge, skills and educational experience of Delran’s students.”

The Delran Education Foundation would like to invite members of the school community to attend an organizational meeting for committees and volunteers. We will be meeting on Wednesday, November 18 at 7pm in the Delran High School library, followed by an open meeting of the Board of Trustees at 8pm.

The Delran Education Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation formed in June 2015 by a small group of volunteers, in consultation with the Delran Board of Education. We hope to join in the success of other local education foundations by providing funding through grants awarded to our talented teachers and school leaders in support of our students.

We are very fortunate at this point to have had over 120 potential volunteers sign up during various kick-off events throughout the district, including back-to-school nights and Delran Day. The time for action has come! This is an exciting time for the Foundation — we’re just getting started, and we’re looking for people to help us shape the Foundation from the ground up. We are currently forming the following committees:

Business Outreach Committee – A major source of funding for the Delran Education Foundation will be partnerships with businesses with an interest in supporting education and education initiatives.
The main function of this committee will be:

  • reaching out to local businesses to seek donations and/or sponsorship of events.
  • organizing sponsorship materials and donation packages
  • seeking funding from businesses capable of larger donations

Casino Night Committee – Casino Night is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, March 12th, 2016.
We are currently looking for volunteers for:

  • organizing door prizes and auction items
  • seeking and coordinating sponsorships
  • providing event support – in the week prior and day of

5K Run/Walk Committee – Tentatively planned for late Spring 2016
Anticipated needs:
