About This Event
The Somerset Berkley Education Foundation is excited to announce its kickoff event, a 5K Road Race and 1 Mile Fun Run, to benefit students and teachers in Somerset and Berkley!
The Somerset Berkley Education Foundation, a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization, provides grants to educators for programs that further creativity, innovation, and excellence in Somerset and Berkley schools. Founded by community members dedicated to investing in the future, the Foundation's goal is to enhance and enrich the education experience for all students by empowering and supporting teachers and staff in their projects. The Foundation funds projects and initiatives that supplement educators’ work, bring curriculum alive and that inspire our students to inquire, adapt, persevere and innovate. By partnering closely with the community and school districts, the Foundation aims to fund teacher-led initiatives that fall outside school budgets.
Thank you for supporting the students and teachers in Somerset and Berkley!
