Our mission is to enhance the educational opportunities in the Upper Freehold Regional School District through the identification and development of community partnerships and private resources. These collaborations will inspire academic excellence and a positive learning environment that would be otherwise unavailable due to budget constraints.


Big Check

The Foundation participated in a Big Check ceremony tonight at the BOE meeting, where we were presented with contributions aggregating $5,980.69 relating to a targeted donation for the Swim Team!

Attendance from swim team parents and supporters was very strong and we participated in several “photo ops”. It was a great night, filled with excitement and it was great for the Foundation to be a part of it.

Many thanks to Dr. Fitzpatrick for his creativity, dedication and continued support of the kids of our community and the UFREF – and of course, our great support from the BOE.

Spring 2011 Grants Cycle Open

The Upper Freehold Regional Education Foundation is pleased to announce the opening of our Spring 2011 Grants Cycle, which marks the entrance into our fifth full year of operation.

Starting this year, grant applications will be accepted ONLY in electronic format. Grant applicants are asked to submit their requests to ufref@yahoo.com, with all appropriate attachments and signatures, no later than Friday, April 8, 2011.

All applicants should utilize the Mini-Grant Application to submit Grant applications. See the Grants Page for more detail.


Fall 2010 Grants Awarded

The Upper Freehold Regional Education Foundation elected to award all twelve grant requests submitted, in full or in part, totaling $8,704 to the school district’s elementary, middle and high schools. The total amount requested for all grants this cycle was $17,919.61.

We are in a once in a lifetime financial crisis which has pressured the School District to make some significant reductions and cuts in programs and activities that have been provided for in the past.

In continuing our highly successful “Bridging the Gap” initiative launched in September, the Ed Foundation has stepped up to the challenge to provide funding in full or in part to many of these innovative programs and projects.

UFREF provides students with educational opportunities they might not otherwise have.
