What: The Winters Education Foundation (WEF)
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization located in Winters, CA. Our
mission is to support excellence in the Winters public schools by raising the
necessary funds for district-wide programs that schools are no longer able to
provide, and to promote equitable opportunities among all the schools in
Winters. WEF raises money within our community to subsidize our schools
in response to the needs of all our children.
Who: Concerned people just like YOU!
Are YOU a part of the WEF? We are people just like you! We are volunteers:
parents, grandparents, community members, graduate students, educators,
and administrators -- all working to make it possible for our school to better
meet the educational and cultural needs of our children.
We want your help and your financial support!
Why: Should YOU care about the WEF?
State support for public school students in California is among the lowest in
the nation and is based largely on enrollment numbers. Every year Winters
enrolls fewer children in our public schools, which further cuts the available
funds used to educate and enhance our children's school experience.
Although our nation's economic crisis has worsened the problem, it is not a
short term problem and will not fix itself in time for our children! Ultimately,
WE are responsible for ensuring that our children have the tools they need
to benefit from the instruction they receive. When and where gaps exist,
those of us who care for our children, their future, our community, and the
potential of our country, MUST step in.
If we unite on behalf of our shared future, we will make the Winters schools
some of the very best - and our children will thank us!
