Established in 2005, the Little Compton Education Foundation is an independent, non-profit 501c3 organization whose mission is to enhance the educational experiences of Little Compton public school students by fostering community support for the Wilbur & McMahon School.
The Little Compton Education Foundation believes that offering a wide variety of educational experiences that tap into students’ interests will help enrich the high-quality public education they currently receive. Whether it’s providing a greater exposure to the arts, more access to current and innovative technologies, a better understanding of the history of the community, a deeper awareness of our ecological surroundings, or offering any number of other programs, the Foundation is committed to providing educational opportunities that can ignite a child’s passion for learning.
The Foundation works closely with, but independently from the school system. Our board of directors consists of residents and business people whose commitment to public education in Little Compton is strong and in the best interest of every child in the Little Compton school system. Each board member brings different skills and expertise and all members volunteer their time and services.
Striving to promote excellence in teaching and educational leadership, the Foundation cultivates joint public-private partnerships that will provide teachers with volunteer help, community support and access to additional financial resources.
