Our history as trusted volunteers interested in preparing students
for the future goes back more than 30 years.
The EFW was organized in 1990 in an effort to raise money to support new, innovative and interesting learning ideas that would improve the overall educational quality of Wauwatosa’s public schools. And ever since then, we being doing just that. Since inception, we’ve worked to raise funds that we turn around and award back to educators in the form of grants dollars that will be used to enhance and extend the established curriculum and support projects that are beyond the school district’s budget.
The EFW is run by a volunteer board of directors and a part-time administrative director. It is financially supported by the Wauwatosa community. About 90 percent of all money raised goes directly to grants.
