a non-profit foundation dedicated to recognizing  educators

for their outstanding achievements and contributions

in classrooms, schools, and communities


The Goldin Foundation for Excellence in Education recognizes and rewards educators who have made outstanding contributions in their classrooms, schools and communities.  The Foundation seeks to foster the respect for and appreciation of educators. It also seeks to retain quality educators and attract others to the profession.

Established in 1990 as a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization, the Goldin Foundation for Excellence in Education provides six annual awards of $500 to each participating collaborative of school systems, to be used at the discretion of individuals selected.  As the Foundation expands, it will continue to serve additional collaborations of school systems.
