Our Focus:
Music and
Science
The Newark Educational Foundation is focused on supporting major initiatives in Science and Music education in the Newark Unified School District. We facilitate donors and volunteers becoming involved in unique opportunities that make a difference in the educational experience of our students.
Why Science? Why Music?

Biology, Chemistry, and Physics are all taught in school. The challenge is how to make these subjects a lifelong passion instead of just another class. The NEF funds programs that make Science real, like dissecting an Owl pellet to learn about the food-chain or watching a rocket you built soar 1,000 feet into the sky. Unforgettable memories that form the foundation of a career.


For years, music programs have fallen into the crevices formed by budget cutbacks and shortfalls. This is especially true in our elementary schools. The once common acts of a 1st grade class singing a song or 6th grader learning to play the clarinet are sadly rare. Today many students just listen to music, the NEF believes they should experience it.



"Science is order. Music is chaos. And vice-versa."
