Welcome to Tri-Creek Education Foundation
We are parents, teachers, community members and administrators who believe in the potential of the youth of the Tri-Creek area. We are 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, and our annual Competitive Grant Opportunity open to T-C staff.
Our purpose is to raise the money necessary to educate our youth in new ways and improve on the traditional methods.
Tax deductible donations to the foundation will give 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.
THANK YOU to
RUTH & JOE
The T-C Education Foundation was named the residual beneficiary of the Ruth (Dahl) and Joe Weinberg 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.
We will always be grateful to Mr. & Mrs. Weinberg for wanting to help our students. Their impact is immeasurable.
Dividend disbursements have been approved by the TCEF Board to fund the following (per annual review) totaling $31,450:
“ACROSS THE BOARD” PROGRAMS ~ $18,450
5th gr Challenger field trip ~ $300/class x 9 = $2,700 (will fund additional classes if over 9)
LHS Mentor Program = $5,000
LMS 8th grade class trip = $5,000
LMS Mentor Program training = $2,000
Robotics Teams ~ all 3 elementary & LMS: $750/school = $3,000

since credit hour and students enrolled vary = $10,000 maximum
CHERYL ROSEVEAR COMMUNITY SERVICE SCHOLARSHIPS 2 @ $1,500 = $3,000

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.
