The Exeter Community Education Foundation (ECEF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the education of students in the Exeter School District.

You can help the students and our community through joining, participating, and contributing your time, passion, and money to the ECEF. 


ECEF Board
ECEF's dedicated team. These are the folks working tirelessly to help the students of ETSD and our community. Many thanks to each of them, as we wouldn't be where we are today without them and their predecessors. We would be amiss to not thank their spouses and families for allowing them to give their time & talents. THANK YOU!

Did you know that since 2008 ECEF has donated over $300k to our students and teachers? We focus on projects/programs outside of the District's budget and scope, aiming for the creative, the new and innovative.

Our biggest fundraiser of the year is our annual Golf Tournament in memory of Mr. Roy Underhill. With your support, the annual Golf Tournament typically nets over $30k. Find our events link on Facebook to see how you can sponsor a hole and/or golf in our Tournament!

ECEF is comprised of 25 board members, who work hard to provide funding and opportunities for the students of Exeter Township School District. Here's a group photo of the many great people involved with ECEF. Missing from this photo are: Bonnie Lutz, Jeff Bukowski, Kristy Weller, Dr. Glenn Corbin, Matt Hathaway and Ed Yoder. #exeterstong!

Since 2008, it has been ECEF's mission to raise funds in support of programs and services for students attending schools in the Exeter Township School District.  Our volunteer Board of Directors and committee members includes alumni, parents, School Board members, retired and current teachers, former and current administrative leaders and active community members.  With the volunteers' tireless work, ECEF has grown each year, and for that we are grateful. 

Purpose

The ECEF is an independent public charity dedicated to encouraging community-wide participation and philanthropy, including post-secondary scholarships, in order to enhance and expand enrichment opportunities of all students.
Mission StatementThe mission of the ECEF is to secure resources for our students to support programs for which sufficient funds are not available from federal, state, and local public sources.  These programs will promote excellence in learning and mobilize community support for enhancing the quality of education in the Exeter Township School District.

ECEF Teacher Mini-Grants

As the school year approaches, ECEF has updated our Exeter Township teachers and buildings Amazon wish list. It’s not just the kids (and, cough…us parents!) that are excited for a new school year! We have lots of new teachers that are needing to build their classrooms too. Help us share some love with our Exeter teachers. If you don’t see your child’s teacher on the list, private message us on Facebook with the teacher name and we’ll happily send them an email asking them if they need anything for their classroom. https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/31XEDNZOQG6GN...
We also have an Exeter Cares student outreach list for students in need. These are basic staple items but very essential. We’ll update this regularly as needs arise, especially with the change of seasons. https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/QHK43NISJ695...

ECEF Teacher Mini-Grants


Did you know that ECEF gives out around $3000 yearly in teacher mini grants thanks to proceeds from our yearly golf tournament? We love supporting their dynamic projects and can think of no better thing to do!
Thanks to our donors, we’re able to fund projects like Mrs. Amy Lubenow’s flexible seating for her Junior High students. Did you know that flexible seating allows the user to wobble, rock, bounce, lean or stand, which increases oxygen to the brain, blood flow and core strength. In turn, this burns more calories and increases metabolism. It also helps keep young minds more alert and focused. Congratulations to Amy and her students! 🦅
