A message from our president.

I am excited to serve as President of the ZEF Board and continue our long history of supporting ZCS teachers, students, and schools. Broad community support enables ZEF to fund grants that help teachers dream big and provide innovative educational experiences for their students.

As ZEF celebrates our 25th anniversary, I look forward to working with my fellow Board members and the ZEF staff to increase our impact and build for the future.
