The Anthony Wayne Education Foundation is governed by a Board of Trustees acting independently of the Anthony Wayne Board of Education, administration, and faculty. A liaison is maintained with the school board and administration in an ex-officio capacity.

The Anthony Wayne Education Foundation has been formed as a non-profit charitable corporation to recognize outstanding performance by, or special needs of, students, teachers, staff and alumni, and to augment the financial support for education in the Anthony Wayne School District. Through the vehicle of a charitable organization, the Foundation offers individuals and businesses the opportunity to support the educational process through tax-deductible contributions. Gifts to the Foundation will build an endowment fund, which will be used to perpetuate the ideals of academic excellence and progress for the present and future generations of students and educators in the school district.
