WREA Foundation                                                                         

The WREA Foundation was established in 1996 by the Wisconsin Retired Educators' Association (WREA) to provide outreach programs to the community, to support continuing education and life-long learning, and to enhance and foster volunteerism.

Projects of the WREA Foundation include:

  • Wisconsin Teacher of the Year Grant
  • Support for Public Education Outreach
  • Challenge Award Innovative School Programs

    Each year the WREA Foundation awards five $2,000 grants to public schools throughout Wisconsin.  Each of WREA's five districts receives one of the awards.  The awards rotate between elementary schools, middle schools, and high schools.

    The Awards recognize ongoing, innovative projects not more than two years old.  The application form is simple and requires a project description limited to no more than 500 words.  The application form is below at the end of the page and will be available from  November 1 through February 1.
