The mission of the Wellesley Education Foundation, a 501(3)(c) organization, is to advance innovation and excellence in the Wellesley Public Schools.
- annual Spelling Bee
- semi-annual STEM Expo
- Red Apple teacher recognition awards
- grants for public school educators
Over $2.3 million has been awarded in the last 10 years to sponsor programs and initiatives that inspire the love of learning in the Wellesley Public Schools.
One way WEF works toward public schools innovation and excellence is by funding grants each year for public school educators.
The deadline for submitting all grant applications was January 16th, 2024. We’ll post about recipients when WEF makes their decisions.

The Wellesley High School cafeteria was abuzz with Spelling Bee excitement for the second time in 2023 as the Wellesley Education Foundation got the fundraiser back on track to its traditional fall timing after COVID messed with the natural order of, well, everything for a couple of years.
