The Winton Woods Educational Foundation was established in 2006 by a group of concerned public school supporters who were aware that State funding was not sufficient to encourage some activities that would support and enhance the academic success of the Winton Woods City School students. The Board members established a nonprofit 501(c)(3) with rules and regulations to further the mission of the Foundation, to promote and enhance the educational excellence of the Winton Woods City Schools students and programs. The WWEF encouraged donations from alumni, community members, and corporations to support their goal. They established fundraisers and continued to engage the community to increase awareness of the purpose of the Foundation. They worked for 3 years to establish an endowment that would allow them to begin disbursing funds to grant applicants. It was in 2009 that the Foundation first granted awards submitted by teachers and staff. This giving has continued yearly with grant submissions being solicited in the Spring and awards announced at the beginning of the next school year. As of the Fall of 2019, the WWEF has awarded nearly $100,000 in grants and has positively impacted over 7000 students.
