The WEF is an independent, volunteer, non-profit organization, founded in 1993 for the purpose of enhancing the education of Westerville students. Its primary goal is to promote educational initiatives undertaken by employees in the district. The group began awarding grants in the spring of 1997, funding three proposals of $500 each. From this humble beginning, the foundation has provided for many enhanced educational opportunities for Westerville City Schools students. Through the spring of 2015, WEF has funded 204 grants and one initiative totaling more than $155,750.
