Welcome to Tri-Creek Education Foundation


We are parents, retired educators, 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 normal funding, or which cannot be funded by the school corporation. Our main annual projects are 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 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.



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

The majority of this most generous gift will fund annual Ruth Dahl Weinberg Memorial Teaching Scholarships, 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 $33,000:


     5th grade Challenger Field Trip

     8th grade Class Trip

     Cheryl Rosevear Community Service Scholarships (2)

     Kindergarten book for all K students

     LHS Dual Credit Scholarships

     LHS EV Go Kart project

Our Logo

Our logo symbolizes the flame of learning, with three flames, one for each of the three townships in which our students live. 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.
