Essex Elementary School Foundation

The Essex Elementary School Foundation is a not-for-profit, volunteer organization established to provide a channel for parents and community members to make tax-deductible contributions for the benefit of Essex Elementary School. Since its inception in 1996, the primary goal has been to create a significant endowment that can support the school's strategic vision to be a world-class educational institution. Each year, 5% of the EESF endowment is allocated for worthy educational projects, enrichment programs, and other initiatives such as a Scientist-in-Residence program, a Historian-in-Residence program, literacy support materials, equipment for musical and physical education, playground improvements, logical thinking games, and audio/visual equipment.
