Show appreciation to your favorite teachers with NEF Teacher Tributes!


The Perfect Way to Say Thank You.

The end to this school year has been like no other before it. It has been an unexpected challenge for students and their families to stay home to stay safe, and to continue their school year online. But, Newburyport public school administrators, teachers and staff have managed to connect with their students to keep them engaged in the learning process from afar, through Zoom and Google classroom, emails and phone calls.
If you would like to say thank you for their extraordinary efforts over the past few months, please consider sending them a Teacher Tribute to benefit the Newburyport Education Foundation (NEF).

When you make a donation in a teacher’s honor, with an NEF Teacher Tribute, the proceeds will be used across the district to continue to fund STEM initiatives, the “Preventing Summer Reading Loss” program, needed technology upgrades and replacements, and increased Teacher Partnership grants to support their visionary ideas for classrooms across all grade levels.

How to Honor Your Teacher

What do Teacher Tributes mean to teachers?
“It means we are able to upgrade our technology and provide the kids with an enhanced learning experience,”
— Newburyport High School Librarian Lynne Cote.

As tributes are received, your personal message will be emailed to the teacher(s) being honored. Once it is safe to do so, the NEF will also deliver a notecard and pin to the schools for those teachers to commemorate this honor. Learn more about Teacher Tributes.
