Current & Past Projects
Haddonfield Memorial High School Scholarship Fund
The Haddonfield Educational Trust oversees the Haddonfield Memorial High School Scholarship Fund and manages an endowment of $2.3 million and annually awards over $100,000 in gifts and scholarships to graduating seniors at the Haddonfield Memorial High School. Nearly all of these scholarships have been funded by generous alumni and community members.
Teacher Innovation Grants (Annually)
The Haddonfield Educational Trust has committed to supporting the work of teachers and students through the Teacher Innovation Grant program. The program invites faculty throughout the district to apply for grants that allow teachers to explore creative avenues to deliver curriculum, improve their instructional strategies or enrich the educational opportunities for their students.
Lights, Camera, Action
In December 2011, Janice W. Hunt and past co-chair Deanna Burney presented a $70,000 check to the Haddonfield Board of Education. This was the culmination of the “HMHS Lights, Camera, Action!” campaign; a private fundraising effort to update and replace the sound system, lighting and stage curtains at Haddonfield Memorial High School. The trust played a significant role serving as the 501c3 to whom the community could make their donations to support the project.
High School Turf Field (2012-13)
Haddonfield Turf Field Committee Chair Joe DelDuca took the podium in September 2013 and thanked those who had contributed to the installation of the turf field, including those who played a part in the Turf Field Golf and Barbecue at Tavistock Country Club on June 10, sponsored by the Haddonfield Educational Trust. The trust played a significant role in conducting the golf tournament and serving as the 501c3 to whom the community could make their donations to support the project.
Central School Playground (2015-16)

Tatem School Playground (2017)
