The Cape Henlopen Educational Foundation (CHEF) exists to develop resources and increase community awareness for the Cape Henlopen School District. Our joint mission is to prepare each student for a healthy, creative, productive life in a diverse and global society by creating an educational environment that enables each student to achieve personal excellence and lifelong learning skills to become a productive and responsible citizen.
The Vision that CHEF and the Cape Henlopen School District has for the program is to create:
Touching the lives of nearly 5,000 students and their families, CHEF provides funding to programs that directly affect children and to teachers for innovative educational programs that would not normally receive funding from the district. CHEF also supports arts enrichment for individual students through grants for extra-curricular opportunities in the performing arts.
Our mission isn’t just to reinvigorate education; but to invest in both our community’s future vitality and its youth. By continuing to strengthen our diverse school district, we are significantly supporting the health of our towns and the surrounding area.
