The Arlington Education Foundation is dedicated exclusively to enriching the Arlington Public Schools from pre-k to high school. Our donors make our work possible. We have awarded over $750,000 in grants to the Arlington Public Schools since 2013.

Mission & History

We work to support and advance public education in Arlington, Massachusetts. We fund system-wide initiatives and creative new projects to enhance the educational experiences of Arlington’s teachers and students.

The Arlington Education Foundation was incorporated in 2010, but the history of supporting public education in Arlington goes back to 1991. The Foundation was created through the merger of two previous foundations dedicated to supporting Arlington’s teachers and students, and to enriching the Arlington Public Schools.
