The Warren Woods Foundation for Educational Advancement serves the Warren Woods Public Schools (WWPS) by sponsoring programs of outstanding educational worth that cannot be provided through the school districts budget. The Foundation hosts one charity dinner every year to raise money to accomplish this goal. In addition the Foundation receives donations from WWPS employees, retirees, community members, community groups, estates, and donations made in the name of a loved one.
