EFD: Your support is needed now more than ever!

The Educational Foundation of Dexter is proud to continue supporting Dexter students and teachers. As a unified organization, they have merged the EFD focus on teacher grants with E4DS’s original mission to support larger district initiatives. This year, they provided DCS with $32,000 in funding for Mood Lifters and other supportive mental health and wellness programming.

They also awarded $22,000 in teacher grants impacting every DCS building, including 3-D printers for Mill Creek and Wylie’s Rainbow Lending Library.

This summer, EFD would like to provide financial support to Dread Strong Summer, a fun, free and educational opportunity for Y5 – 8th grade students. Participants will be exposed to a variety of experiences over the course of each week designed to engage them in hands-on, collaborative learning. Best of all, Dexter students will be able to be with their peers, and be kids!

EFD’s goal is to provide $50,000 each year toward teacher-authored grants and district initiatives to benefit Dexter students. The pandemic has prevented EDF from hosting any in-person events in 2020 and 2021 such as our annual Spring Gala. To carry forward the EFD mission, they rely on your support to fund vital student programs.
