REF is an independent non-profit, 501(c)(3), organization dedicated to expanding the educational experience of all Reading School District students. Our purpose is to support innovative opportunities that encourage our students to Dream, Believe & Achieve, through funding districtwide, school-based, and individual teacher grant requests. As we continue to fund grant requests annually, we also are committed to building an endowment that will expand these life-changing experiences for Reading School District students, while strengthening our future community workforce for years to come.
As a Business Member you’ll enjoy the perks of networking at Marquee Events while supporting a brighter future for our kids and our community. Membership in our Leadership Circle, and Gold, Silver and Bronze tiers, allows you to contribute at an amount that’s comfortable for you and gives you access to unique events that you don’t want to miss. Your financial support will fund innovative educational experiences for Reading School District Pre-K through Grade-12 students, designed to foster exceptional learning experiences in the pursuit of academic excellence.
