Grant Applications
The mission of the Township of Union Education Foundation is to make available those resources that will enrich the learning process of students so that they can possess the skills and attitudes to be productive citizens in an increasingly complex, competitive and changing world.  To meet this challenge, the Education Foundation will strive to enhance the quality of education of all Union students by supporting and encouraging the development of innovative programs and projects which comply with but are not budgeted for by the district.

The 2018-2019 Education Foundation grant application forms are now available!

What We Do
Why We Do It
We are a 501 (c)(3) non-profit charitable organization composed of volunteer citizens whose goal is to raise and distribute funds for competitive grants to teachers  for creative and innovative educational programs in our public schools.
To date, the  Ed  Foundation has funded over 100 grants and donated over $160,000,
(link here to. all the grants we have funded) ,

​​Our public schools today are facing the constant challenge of doing more with less.  Higher operating costs and budget caps affect the use of limited funds.  The Education Foundation funds go directly to our students in the form of grant materials for their teachers.  Teachers are excited to use new materials, students become more enthusiastic learners.  Everyone benefits!
