Our mission is supported by many generous donors, including corporate sponsors, community merchants and individual donors. Thank you to our 2019 Barn Bash funding partners. We welcome contributions at any time, and host several events each year. For more information on how to partner with ZEF please see our sponsorship brochure.

Help ZEF Support Teachers

Help us fund IMMEDIATE NEEDS & INNOVATIVE IDEAS in the unpredictable year ahead.

YOUR ANNUAL BACK TO SCHOOL GIFT enables ZEF to continue funding teachers' creative ideas and be ready for unexpected needs.

GIVE ONE, GET ONE! In appreciation for your donation, you will receive two Zionsville masks - one to give to the teacher of your choice and one for you to enjoy! ‬

2020 ZEF Bash

Join us for the 2020 ZEF Bash on November 14th as we celebrate ZEF's 25th anniversary and raise funds for innovative projects in our schools. The event will take place either in-person or virtually depending on state and local guidelines. This annual ZEF tradition is the perfect way to support the teachers and administrators that are skillfully leading us through pandemic learning and continuously working to provide educational excellence for all students.
