Welcome to the Rumson Education Foundation Website
Since its inception in 1995, the Rumson Education Foundation (REF) and our generous benefactors have raised over $1.6 million dollars for the Deane Porter and Forrestdale schools. Our ongoing grants & projects have enabled this continuous support every year since. In 2013 alone, REF granted $129,000 to our Rumson public schools.
The REF’s grants and projects provide new and innovative educational tools, technologies, and programs that would not otherwise be possible due to school budgetary constraints. Our REF grants have facilitated the implementation of Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT) and the Google campus through the funding of Chrome books & wireless technology upgrades. Through the overwhelming generousity of the REF community we have contributed toward the creation of a state-of-the-art science lab, cutting-edge technology in the classrooms, music & art equipment, and many more significant educational programs.
Our mission is to continue enhancing the educational experience of our Deane Porter and Forrestdale students. When you support the REF you support EVERY STUDENT in the district. Please join us in our mission by becoming a member of REF, donating to the Foundation, or volunteering for our cause to increase the educational values of our schools. Click here to become a member.
