WEF COVID-19 Innovation Fund
Wellesley Education Foundation, a long-time champion of the values of innovation, excellence and inclusion within the Wellesley school community, extends its support for the ongoing safe operation of Wellesley Public Schools through establishment of the WEF COVID-19 Innovation Fund.
This fund is intended facilitate safety-related needs for our schools during the COVID-19 pandemic. Donations to this fund should be viewed as an investment in safety that provides a community benefit to all. All donations are fully tax-deductible.
Contributions to the WEF COVID-19 Innovation Fund are currently supporting the viral testing program in Wellesley Public Schools. This program is 100% privately funded by WEF.
WEF's initial gift of $250,000 fully funded back-to-school baseline testing for all students and staff. Donations are now being sought in support of weekly assurance testing for both students and staff. To date, 440+ donors have contributed over $330,000 toward ongoing assurance testing in the Wellesley Public Schools.
WEF extends its sincerest gratitude to our many generous donors who continue to make this program possible. Additional funding will allow WPS to further advance its testing efforts, adapt to evolving needs, mitigate potential outbreaks, and provide our community with the best opportunity to maximize in-person learning. As needs evolve, contributions to this fund may be sought for other purposes related to the safe operation of our schools.
