About the Foundation

The North Royalton Educational Foundation (NREF) was established in 1986 to enrich educational opportunities for students and teachers.

The financial demands of keeping pace with the rapidly advancing world of technology and the need to provide students with a level of education that will keep them competitive in the world’s job market, make the work of the North Royalton Educational Foundation more important than ever before.

Through fundraising efforts, the Educational Foundation awards grants to teachers each year. These grants are awarded at every grade level and encompass the needs of students ranging from special education to gifted education. Fundraising events include Friday Night Bites, the Taste of North Royalton and the Annual Fund/Reception.

In addition, the Educational Foundation helps fund district programs recognizing academic excellence and honors a Teacher of the Year, Support Staff of the Year, and Friend of Education award. It also awards yearly Educational Foundation College Scholarships. The Educational Foundation also serves as a vehicle for individuals and families to set up scholarships/grants. When you donate to the North Royalton Educational Foundation, your contribution will go toward such items as: hands-on classroom enrichment materials, reading literacy projects, mathematic skill enhancements, challenging science projects, supplemental art and music equipment, and a variety of other items which all enhance educational opportunities for our students.
