Woburn Community Education Foundation, WCEF

In 2014 the Woburn Community Education Foundation was formed to help “fill the gap” in funding for Woburn public schools. WCEF raises funds through special events and direct appeals. These revenues are then are gifted back to the public schools through our Educator Grants Program as well as through special initiatives for educational enhancements not covered by the district’s publicly funded budget. This non-profit organization has made incredile strides in just a few short years and are moving forward, full steam ahead. Maureen Willis, WCEF Executive Director joined us at the September Women of Woburn lunch at the Courtyard Marriot. She gave a preview of oneof the purses which will be raffled off at the upcoming Women’s Forum.

One of their most popular fundraisers is the Women’s Forun & Purse Raffle. This great event features a key note speaker as well as the purse raffle. This year’s special guest is award-winning journalist, author and inspirational keynote speaker Kelley Tuthill.  Please consider joining them on Sunday, October 16th at 11am at the Crest View Plaza in Woburn for a wonderful brunch buffet and raffle of high-end and designer purses, all to support WCEF’s Educator Grants program.
