The Chatham Education Foundation is in the process of accepting applications for new Trustees and other committee volunteer positions. The CEF Board currently consists of 25 Trustees supported by additional community volunteers.

In reviewing our resources over the next few years, we anticipate needing new Trustees and committee volunteers primarily with experience and/or interest in fundraising, large donor development and sponsor outreach. We’re also looking to deepen our bench in Accounting/Treasury and Event Management. Applications will be accepted through February 20th.

The application process will include a review by CEF’s Nominating Committee followed by a Board vote of new members that will take place at CEF’s Annual Meeting to be held on March 15th. The CEF Trustee and Volunteer Interest form is attached.  If you have any questions or would like to learn more about being a CEF Trustee or volunteer, please email Stacey Ewald at

The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization managed by a board of volunteer Trustees and has no employees or physical assets.

The Chatham Education Foundation has funded over $1.2 million dollars in grants and scholarships since 1997. We are a leading provider of private funding to the School District of the Chathams. We support innovative and creative educational programs and special projects that are designed to enrich the mind and body of the 4,200 K-12 students enrolled in the District’s six public schools. Our organization consists of volunteers from all corners of the community and we operate independently of the Board of Education and Parent- Teacher Organizations.
