Welcome to the

Tri-Creek Education Foundation, Inc.

Learners Today, Leaders Tomorrow

We are parents, teachers, community members and administrators who believe in the potential of the youth of the Tri-Creek area. Bound together by a common goal of funding programs which fall outside of normal funding, or which cannot be funded. This includes scholarships to deserving students. Our purpose is to raise the funds necessary to educate our youth in new ways and improve on the traditional methods. Through tax deductible donations to the foundation, we will be giving our children the tools they need to go on to higher education. Our children's goals will soon be the goals of our community and to achieve their dreams is to achieve our own. The Tri-Creek Education Foundation, Inc. is a 501c3 Tax Deductible Foundation.

2018 Competitive Grants

Innovative programs continue to be a part of the curriculum for Tri-Creek area students, thanks to the support of the Tri-Creek Education Foundation.
The Foundation’s seventeenth annual competitive grant opportunity has awarded over $18,000 due to generous donations from the community and a very successful annual Labor Day 5K run/walk.
Lynne Haberlin, Foundation Director and Chairperson of the Foundation’s Grant Committee, introduced the 2018 recipients of fourteen grants, which will impact Tri-Creek students at all levels in all buildings, at the Tri-Creek School Corporation Board of School Trustees’ meeting held Thursday, November 8, 2018.

The T-C Education Foundation was named the residual beneficiary of the
Ruth and Joe Weinberg estate

T-CEF has been given a substantial part of the inheritance with the remainder due upon settlement of the estate. 
The greatest part of this most generous gift will fund the Ruth Dahl Weinberg Memorial Teaching Scholarship, while the stock dividends will be providing wonderful opportunities for our T-C students. 
Dividend disbursements have been approved by the Foundation Board to fund the following for the 2015-16 SY: 
     $90-$120/credit hour

It is this flame which the Tri-Creek Education Foundation, Inc. fuels through funding innovative educational programs, scholarships and program grants. A forward looking group of parents, community leaders and educators established this foundation in 2000 with the hope of creating a self sustaining source of funding for the future.
