The purpose of the Wakefield High School Education Foundation, Inc. is to provide scholarships to graduating Wakefield seniors. Established in 1986, the Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. We are proud that, to date, we have been able to help 373 Wakefield graduates attend college. Since the creation of the Foundation in 1986, we have given a total of $2,053,699 in scholarships and teacher grants. All of those funds were raised through contributions and interest income.

Volunteers do all of the work of the Foundation and the only expenses are postage and printing. Because of this, the Foundation has historically been able to give almost 100% of funds donated in scholarships.

Each spring a selection committee consisting of alumni from various Wakefield classes and current and retired staff members review the scholarship applications and select award winners. PDF Forms for the current year are available now on our FORMS page.

In addition, the Foundation maintains a database of Wakefield graduates and friends of Wakefield. The data is available to reunion committees.
