About the Foundation
The Ringwood Educational Foundation (REF) was started in 1993 by former members of the Ringwood Board of Education and is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. REF maintains a member Board of Trustees, volunteering their efforts for fundraising, on behalf of the Ringwood School District in an effort to supplement existing curriculum within the Ringwood School system, through teacher submitted grant requests. Since then, the Foundation has supported a wide range of teacher projects, that support the arts, writing, reading, phyisical education and STEM in our classrooms.
The mission of the Ringwood Educational Foundation is to enhance and enrich the public educational experience of all our students. Together with the community, we aim to keep our schools ready for tomorrow.
