Welcome to West Ottawa’s Education Foundation
We are the West Ottawa Education Foundation, an independent not-for-profit organization whose purpose is to help the West Ottawa teachers and students excel in programs that are not funded by public tax revenues. Led by a volunteer Board of Directors made up of business, education and community leaders, the Foundation has raised thousands of dollars since its inception more than two decades ago.
The West Ottawa Education Foundation raises funds to support innovative programs or activities designed to improve students learning. It is the goal of this organization to provide financial assistance to start new projects.
We accomplish our mission through our grant programs, which provide teachers with the knowledge, experience, and materials they need to remain at the frontiers of educational excellence. Our grants finance educational opportunities outside the scope of the school operating budget and target areas such as innovation in curriculum and instruction, professional development, and teacher mentoring.
Building A Foundation One Brick At A Time
It takes a community to educate a child. Whether you are a West Ottawa student, parent, alum or resident, you are part of that community. So are we.
Our goal is to take those efforts to the next level through an endowment fund that benefits the students of the West Ottawa school system for the present and future generations. One way we hope to grow our endowment fund is through our Build-A-Brick campaign. For a $75 tax-deductible donation, you can be part of the West Ottawa legacy by purchasing a personalized engraved brick to be set along the walkway connecting the West Ottawa High School campus.
Bricks are a great opportunity to celebrate a student’s graduation or educational accomplishment, remember your connection to West Ottawa or honor someone’s contribution to education. Click on the Brick Order Form link below to order your brick!
