|Nutley, NJ – The Nutley Educational Foundation (NEF) is pleased to announce the launch of the Nutley Learning Tree. The Nutley Learning Tree (NLT) is a program that matches Nutley Public School Educator material and project needs called “wishes” with contributors who can make their wishes come true!
Are you passionate about a certain subject? Robotics, the arts, mathematics? Donors can help fulfill NLT wishes by making a tax-deductible donation for a specific project that interests them. Contributors can view all of the wishes posted and can give any amount toward that wish. Wishes will be satisfied when the full funding requirements are met. Donors should check back often, as new wishes will be posted year round.
Educators can post “wishes” ranging in value from $50 to $500 directly to the website. Among the seven wishes waiting to be granted are Next Generation Robots valued at $500 submitted by Miss Sarno of Lincoln School; Neat Seats submitted by Miss Ciancimino of Washington School valued at $144; and Learning Math with Kinetic Sand submitted by Mrs. Pied of Yantacaw School valued at $88. Additional wishes will now be accepted anytime throughout the year and can be submitted at www.NutleyEF.org/learningtree.
According to NEF President Lorraine Kucinkski, “NEF is proud to be able to extend this 'helping hand' to our educators who wish to go beyond the classroom's budgeted programs. Our hope is to become your frequently visited host site for our educators' special projects and see them funded to the benefit of every Nutley student!” NEF Fundraising Chair Blaire Rzempoluch added, "our committee has been hard at work developing the NLT, our very own community based 'Donor's Choice' program that provides funding solutions to the small projects Nutley educators often have to fund out of their own pockets. What better way to show appreciation for the teachers who play such a key role in the development and evolution of each one of our students than by funding an NLT wish?"
NEF invites you to connect with them by visiting NutleyEF.org and following them on Facebook, Twitter (@NutleyEF) and LinkedIn!
