The Achieve Foundation of South Orange & Maplewood raises funds to promote exemplary public education for all students and educators in our community.  Achieve is a registered, tax exempt 501(c)(3) organization. Many community volunteers join together to pursue its mission by organizing events and campaigns and by seeking corporate and institutional grants.   Achieve’s funds are distributed exclusively to educators in the ten schools of the School District of South Orange and Maplewood for classroom grants, volunteer tutors, professional development, innovative pilot programs and much more to enrich the learning experience at all grade levels. 

Our priorities include: funding programs that advance best educational practices and strive to eliminate the achievement gap; providing a district-wide voice in identifying, understanding, and responding to needs throughout the SOMSD; and building community by working together with a variety of stakeholders to strengthen and enrich educational experiences.
