What is Ridgewood Education Foundation?
The Ridgewood Education Foundation (REF), in collaboration with the District Administration, HSA and Board of Education, has been focused on enhancing the experiences of public school students in the Ridgewood community since 1989. This local non-profit, volunteer organization has provided private funding for projects and initiatives for the community through grants written by educators, parents and students. In 2013 , REF expanded the scope of their investments and increased the impact of their intiatives by supporting projects with district-wide reach as well as community building events.
