The Education Foundation of Wauwatosa, Inc. (EFW) was organized in 1990 to raise money to support and strengthen outstanding learning ideas that improve the overall educational quality of our public schools.

Since inception, the EFW has awarded over $400,000 in grants which enhance and extend the established curriculum and support projects that are beyond the District's budget.

Our Mission

 To generate financial resources that will allow Wauwatosa public schools to provide the highest quality educational experience and prepare students for a successful future.

Our Vision

Students will be proud to attend Wauwatosa public schools because they are afforded the best educational opportunities which are responsive to their talents and abilities and prepare them for their future.

Teachers and administrators will be proud to work for the Wauwatosa public school district because it is a supportive environment that values high student achievement and fosters innovation, collaboration, and professional development.

Community members will be proud to live and work in Wauwatosa because our public schools have a tradition of education excellence and produce outstanding citizens.
