The Hammonton Education Foundation funds innovative projects in the Hammonton School District. Teachers must apply for grants, explaining how their proposed projects would enhance their students' education.
Since its inception in 2003, the foundation has awarded more than $536,268 worth of grants to local schools. Grants for the 2022-2023 school year will be announced this spring.
Teachers of the Year
In addition to the competitive grants, the foundation provides funding to the Governor's Educator of the Year honorees in the Hammonton School District. One teacher in each school receives the recognition annually. The foundation provides a $500 grant to each recipient for a classroom project of their choosing.
This year’s honorees are Christian Febles, ESL teacher at Hammonton High School; Megan Goblirsch, ELA and STEAM teacher at Hammonton Middle School; Cindy McBride, school nurse at Warren E. Sooy Jr. Elementary School; and Judy Rybacki, teacher of elementary education at Hammonton Early Childhood Education Center.
