THE WEST ORANGE EDUCATION FOUNDATION, INC. (WOEF)
The West Orange Education Foundation was formed in 1996 by a group of West Orange citizens that were led by the legendary Hazel Elementary School Principal Fred Eckhardt. The initial mission of improving computer technology in the West Orange elementary schools was a tremendous success.Since that time, led by Rob Parisi, the Foundation established the West Orange and Mountain High School Alumni Fund. The Alumni Fund raised over $100,000 to help fund the Joe Suriano Track and Field Complex at West Orange High School as well as additional other capital improvements throughout the district.
The Foundation is a qualified 501(c)(3) organization (tax ID #22-3447031.)
