The Upper Merion Area Educational Foundation (UMAEF)
is committed to the continuing advancement of public education in the Upper Merion Area School District, by providing funds for educational programs and activities through engagement and collaboration with parents, school staff, businesses, and community members, so that every child is given the opportunity to thrive in a rigorous, engaging, and dynamic environment.
Our focus is to encourage excellence and innovation at the faculty level. Each year UMAEF awards competitive grants for teacher-initiated projects, and the students are the ultimate beneficiaries. Despite the challenges posed this school year by the pandemic, we awarded funds to support district and classroom efforts including anti-racism and inclusion as viewed through literature, expanded library resources, forming positive habits of mind, and materials for the high school maker space.
