Established in 2006, the Community Partnership for Egg Harbor Township Schools, Inc. is a non-profit public charity dedicated to providing financial assistance to the Egg Harbor Township Public School District. Our Board of Trustees is comprised of prominent business leaders, concerned community members, parents, and school district staff members who volunteer their time to advocate for the needs of Egg Harbor Township School District students and staff, raising money for academic programs, cutting-edge technology, extra-curricular activities and capital projects.

To date, the Community Partnership has raised more than $210,000 for a Steinway Grand Piano for the Performing Arts Center, new Television Studio Cameras and equipment upgrades for EHT-TV/Channel2, Field House Concession Stand Kitchen Equipment, High School LED Marquee Sign, Playgrounds at Davenport and Slaybaugh Elementary School complexes, an Atlantic Riding Center for the Handicapped Pilot Program for our at-risk special-needs students, Interactive Classroom Technology, Life-saving Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs), Alder Avenue Middle School Renaissance Program, Advanced Placement Tests, Varsity Boys and Girls Lacrosse Uniforms and Safety Equipment, Alumni Website, Percussion Music Program for Miller Elementary School, and covered the costs of the EHT Teachers of the Year to attend the Atlantic County Superintendent's awards luncheon.

In 1978, casino gambling was introduced in nearby Atlantic City bringing an abundance of job seekers and their families to the area. At the same time, Egg Harbor Township was designated a mandated Regional Growth Area by the NJ State Pinelands Commission creating the ‘perfect storm’ of overpopulation in the Township. What was an economic windfall to the area's hospitality and real estate industries has crippled the local public school district by adding more than 300 new students per year with no additional state or federal funding. As a former rural farming community, the infrastructure of the Township and its schools were not adequately prepared to handle the growth explosion and the influx of school-age children that arrived. As a result, class sizes are dangerously large, academic programs and services are being dropped by budgetary constraints, and students are falling through the cracks.

In order to provide additional resources to Egg Harbor Township Public Schools, the Community Partnership for Egg Harbor Township Schools, Inc. hosts several fundraising events each year, offers District facility Naming Opportunities, conducts an Annual Fund Drive, and seeks grant funding to support the current and future educational needs of the student body.
