History

Timeline of our History

Original Abstract: The Brielle Education Foundation was founded in 1999 by a group of local merchants, business people, parents and other concerned citizens. The Foundation makes funds available to the school to underwrite various cultural, educational and social programs that otherwise would be unavailable to the students.

The Foundation has obtained donations from private foundations, corporations and financial institutions. In addition, many community members have generously supported our fundraising efforts.

Today’s Mission Statement: The Brielle Education Foundation is an independent, nonprofit, community-based organization established to secure resources from individuals, corporations, governments and other foundations. These resources will be used to support specific projects and programs that will stimulate a higher level of excellence in the Brielle School District; to mobilize community support and involvement; to raise funds for use in enriching the educational opportunities of our students; and to encourage the expansion of community involvement in our school district and the education of our children.
