25th Anniversary Campaign
Your gift will make an immediate impact on education in our community!
The Rockford Education Foundation (REF) is in the midst of its 25th year of supporting educators and students in the Rockford community, please help us celebrate this important anniversary!
We are pleased to share that our organization has awarded over $1.3 million in grants to local educators, schools and students since its founding in 1991. We are very proud to have had the opportunity to impact our community over the past 25 years and we could not have done it without the generous support of the Rockford community. As an organization, we are constantly looking towards “what’s next” and we foresee an even greater need to give back to the education community over the next few years.
As a member of the Rockford Community, we are asking for your support. Perhaps you have donated to REF in the past or you are a passionate supporter every year, no matter your level of commitment, we hope you will consider the opportunity to support REF during this milestone year and perhaps make a pledge for the next 3 years.
