About the Foundation


We are a citizen-led and operated non-profit catalyst organized for the purpose of enhancing academic excellence in Ashburnham and Westminster schools. We are an integral part of our communities that connects student achievement with corporate and private sector funds.

We raise private funds to support teaching and learning through gifts and grants to implement innovative ideas that will enhance the lives of children who attend public schools in the Towns of Ashburnham and Westminster.

Our gifts and grants enhance the educational experience, promote academic excellence and provide the future leaders in our community with the best opportunities for success.

Goals of the AWFAE Grant Program

To support creative and innovative curricular development that is beyond the scope of the typical school budget. Creative ideas can be ones that reflect alternative approaches to typical instruction.
