AWFAE, was established to promote educational excellence in the Ashburnham Westminster Regional School District. Our goal is to enhance each student’s capacity for success and fulfillment in school, in the community, and in life.

The Foundation provides private financial support for exemplary educational projects and programs that benefit public school educators and students in the two communities. It is governed by a volunteer group of dedicated citizens from Ashburnham and Westminster committed to fostering the educational experiences of district students.

“During the 2009-2012 school years, the Foundation awarded almost $30,000 in grants to teachers in the district thanks to the generous donations of community members and their support for its annual fall event,” said Mike Sunderland, Vice-President and Chairperson of the Grant Committee.
