Our grants have reached students in first grade through adult education. We have helped students pursue their chosen employment fields through the support of career technical programs.

The Nassau Education Foundation would like to expand robotics and coding to every elementary school county-wide. We will continue our focus on STEM, and support classroom grants in those areas, as well as the arts, literacy and social sciences. We also would like to provide support for career technical programs in order to allow more students to receive certification in their chosen employment fields. Finally, we hope to aide adults in earning their GED by defraying some of their expenses.
