The Rumson Education Foundation


Since its inception in 1995, the Rumson Education Foundation (“REF”) and its benefactors have raised approximately $2.7 million for the Rumson school district, which includes both the Deane-Porter and Forrestdale schools. The REF’s mission is to fund grants that provide new and innovative educational tools, technologies, and programs that would not otherwise be possible due to school budgetary constraints.

Examples of recently funded larger grants include the facilitation of the Google campus through the 1:1 Chromebook initiative, the creation of a state-of-the-art science lab, the agricultural program including an aquaponics lab, apple orchard and mushroom farm, smart boards in all classrooms, and flexible seating.

Through an annual grant process, the REF invites students, teachers, administrators, parents, and community members to apply for funding for indispensable school resources. Grants can be both large and small.

Without the support of the generous community, the REF would not be able to fund these innovative tools and technologies. Please continue to support the REF and its mission. When you support the REF you support EVERY STUDENT in the Rumson school district. Please join us in our mission by becoming a member of REF, donating to the Foundation, or volunteering for our cause.
