Newburyport Education Foundation

The Mission of the Newburyport Education Foundation is to bring philanthropy into the Newburyport Public Schools and generate financial resources that will enhance the quality of public education.

Formed to enhance educational opportunities for the City's public school children, the goal of the Newburyport Education Foundation is to supplement funding for programs which are already supported by public financing at a basic level, but which can be substantially improved by additional private sector financing, and to finance programs that might not receive funding from traditional sources such as the district budget or state aid.

Education Business Coalition

The Education Business Coalition was founded in 1990 as a non-profit organization of educators and business leaders committed to establishing connections between Newburyport Schools and the workplace. One of the first organizations of its kind in New England, the NEBC has since become a recognized leader in providing educators and students alike opportunities for meaningful, curriculum based connections between our schools and our business community. The Education Business Coalition joined together with the Newburyport Education Foundation in 2010.
