The Board of the Neshaminy Education Foundation is pleased to announce the 2015-2016 grant recipients. Each year the staff of Neshaminy School District can apply for these grants in December, the awards are announced in January and the funds must be used by May.
The goal of the NEF grant program is to promote innovation in all Neshaminy schools and to purchase items that might not otherwise be available through the traditional budget process.
