What is Boonton Township Education Foundation?

What is Boonton Township Education Foundation?

We are parents, neighbors, business people and interested members of the community. The BTEF works to raise funds to offer our children supplemental educational opportunities that indulge their passions, enrich their educational experience and have a positive effect on the future of our community.  BTEF achieves this through fund raising which provides such popular programs as the 4KIDS after school enrichment program, and provides grants that provide recognition and equipment for both Boonton Township and Mountain Lakes High School.

Our Mission

Boonton Township Education Foundation is an independent community based nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting and enhancing quality education programs for all Township children.  The Foundation represents parents, educators, business people, school alumni and interested citizens.  To accomplish this mission, the Foundation reaches out to the community to secure funds and resources.  We celebrate the importance, value and achievements of our students, teachers and schools.

Why we need your help

Bricks and mortar can only take us so far.  The Rockaway Valley School budget is constrained by declining state funding. In addition to RVS & MLHS teacher grants and The RVS Musical, it is increasingly difficult to fund innovative new programs, upgrade classroom equipment, and provide enrichment opportunities for our children.  4Kids was created to protect and promote the quality of public education in Boonton Township.  Our goal is to provide our students with a comprehensive and well-balanced educational experience that is competitive with the high quality programs currently offered by many of our neighboring school districts.

How you can make a difference

Our children are a community treasure.  With your help and support, this Foundation can be an integral part of our community by developing and expanding educational opportunities for all Township children.  If you would like to make a tax-deductible contribution, please make your check payable to "Boonton Township Education Foundation" and mail to BTEF, Boonton Township Education Foundation, 11 Valley Rd., Boonton Twp., N.J. 07005.

Thank you for your support!
