Public Education Fund Donates $30,000
Trustees of the Mount Laurel Public Education Fund Inc. donated $30,000 to the district at the September 2016 Board of Education Work Session meeting. The funds represented proceeds from the "21th Annual Driving To The Green Golf Tournament" held last September.
The Mount Laurel Education Fund, Inc. is an independent non-profit corporation formed in 1994 to broaden support for quality education in the Mount Laurel Public Schools. Proceeds from the tournament have contributed more than $800,000 over the past 22 years to the Mount Laurel Schools.
In the 2016-2017 school year, the Public Education Fund contributed tutoring grants for students, as well as project grants for staff. The majority of the funds raised continue to be dedicated to retention of after-school clubs and related activities.
