Congratulations Awards

Tenafly Educational Foundation "Congratulations Awards"

What is it?

Certificate from TEF along with up to $100 in "TEF Dollars."

What are "TEF Dollars"?

Recipients of TEF dollars can purchase any items of their choice for use in their classrooms. No purchase orders or pre-approvals are necessary. These dollars are to be used for educational enhancements for the classroom (i.e., items for bulletin boards, stickers, globes, etc.)

All the award winner will need to do is submit the receipts directly to TEF. We also appreciate a short note letting us know what was purchased and how it will be used in the clasrroom. TEFdollars will expire at the end of the school year in which they are awarded.
