Help us grow our community through educational support from the NBEF

We want you to be a part of our community! Who does not want to support educational opportunities in New Bedford through NBEF’s grants to the New Bedford Public Schools? Why would a person become a member of our community? Because supporting our youth gives us purpose and grows our community.

The port city of New Bedford presents an opportunity to seed and develop competencies in Arts, World Languages, and STEM (Science, Technologies, Engineering, Mathematics), including marine sciences. Our sea heritage is rich in diversity, with artistic and cultural depth reflective of two centuries of trans-global trade.

NBEF works with regional arts, cultural and STEM resources to extend learning from the classroom into our community and around the globe.

Please consider helping us build an environment that helps to shape and guide our community’s individuality to build a strong educational environment that helps us all meet our goals and help shape our youth.
