AEF FUNDED PROGRAMS

Through the generosity of many individuals and businesses, the Abington Educational Foundation (AEF) funds programs and technology each year that increase student well-being and achievement, directly impacting thousands of students in Abington School District's nine schools.

AEF is proud to contribute to ASD students, inspiring the next generation of leaders.

AEF LEARNING GRANTS

AEF provides funding annually for Learning Grants that teachers apply for to enhance technology and educational programs in their classrooms, schools, and for afterschool initiatives. Learning Grants fund programs such as robotics clubs, garden clubs, afterschool STEAM initiatives, language programs, arts initiatives, and specialized technology in the classroom.

​Grant requests are reviewed and voted on by the AEF Grants Committee throughout the school year.
