Winters Education Foundation, WEF, is excited to announce recent grants that were award to Winters Joint Unified School District (Winters JUSD). Mini Grant funding was made possible this year due to generous donors to WEF during The Big Day of Giving last May and a recent substantial anonymous donation. WEF is grateful to all of their donors who allow them to continue to support the Winters JUSD.

WEF was able to award almost $16,000 in grants throughout the District because of donor’s generosity. Some examples of grants that were awarded this year are: books to all Winters JUSD sites, Crocker Art Museum experience for Kindergarten, Woodland Opera House Field trip for all ninth graders, Robotic parts for the high school Robotics Club, items to support technology (iPads, carts, remotes, printer), middle school PE equipment, and transportation for field trips. For a complete list of grants, please visit their website at

WEF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to support excellence in the Winters public schools by raising the necessary funds to help support the schools. Each year WEF sponsors grants to all teachers and administrators which help provide much needed materials and experiences for the students.

In order to be able to continue to support our schools, WEF must continue to raise money through fundraising efforts and tax deductible donations by businesses and private citizens. Community members can have a direct impact on public education in Winters by donating directly to WEF. WEF will be participating, again, in The Big Day of Giving in 2020, or tax deductible donations can be made at or mailed to: Winters Education Foundation, P.O. Box 1047, Winters.

WEF is always searching for energetic volunteers to support various fundraising activities and motivated candidates to serve on the Board of Directors. Interested parties are encouraged to call current WEF President Kurt Balasek at 795-3879 or email him at for more information.
