Grants Awards 2017-2018

For the twelfth year, the award of grants by the Foundation will directly support the students and teachers in the Medford schools in achieving excellence. Our mission and vision express our commitment to expanding educational opportunities for students, especially as diminished funding had gradually reduced many programs. By funding educationally worthy projects, the Foundation’s commitment helps “Make the Difference for our Students.”

The Medford Schools Foundation has awarded over $20,000 in grants this year.
