Who can become a member of the New Jersey Education Foundation Partnership?

Membership is open to education foundations, school districts, and individuals or ad-hoc groups who are interested in starting a local education foundation in their community in New Jersey. Working together we are an advocate for public education funding, increasing private support of public education, and building partnerships to enhance public education in NJ.

Why should my local education foundation become a member?

Joining a professional organization says many things.  It means you want to learn and grow. It means you know that you are not alone in your work, and others in similar positions can help.  You know that encouragement is often all you need to make an idea succeed.  Joining a statewide organization says you are seeing your foundation work with a professional outlook and perspective.

What are the annual dues?

Annual dues are $175 for a basic membership. New for the 2016-17 school year NJEFP is offering a comprehensive membership for $500.  Please visit the Membership page for details. The membership year is July 1-June 30.  If you join after January 15 dues will be $100.

How do I know if my district has a local education foundation?

First, check the NJEFP membership directory.  If after you reviewing that list you do not see your district call your District office.  The Business Administrator is the most likely to know if a foundation already exists.
