Field trip to Cuttyhunk Island

Educational Foundations provide funds for teachers to use in the classroom or for professional development. We discuss why educational foundations are needed and how they complement and enhance public education. We also visit two classrooms to hear how educators are using grant money. 

Guests  on the program are:

Ellen Barol, President of the Falmouth Education Foundation

Amy Wright, President of the Bourne Education Foundation

Michael Westgate, Co-Chair of The Westgate Teacher Fellowship Fund  (also known as the Westgate Fund)

Ann Westgate a committee member on the Westgate Fund.

Mindy Todd hosts. WCAI's Haley Fager recorded the interviews with students.

Mindy Todd is the host and producer of The Point on WCAI which examines critical issues for Cape Cod and the Islands. She brings more than 30 years of experience in radio and television to WCAI.
