#GiveBackFridays: East Greenwich Education Foundation

East Greenwich is one among many historic seaside towns dotting Rhode Island’s scenic coastline. With access to miles of sandy beaches, golf courses, and boating, it is an ideal place to locate your well-rounded lifestyle.

The East Greenwich Education Foundation provides grants to local teachers at six public schools in order to fund creative, innovative, and sustainable initiatives for the classroom. An independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, EGEF works closely with the community in pursuit of this mission.

According to the website, “the EGEF funds initiatives that enhance classroom learning through innovative approaches to teaching. Key objectives of the Foundation include piloting promising programs and supporting their replication throughout the school district.” Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty has had the pleasure of supporting EGEF since 2018.

Legally established in 1677, the town of East Greenwich was purchased from the Pequot tribe and named after Greenwich County in England. The town’s long, rich history is embodied by the well-preserved architecture found on Main Street and throughout the town. Today, the Hill and Harbor neighborhood, a nationally registered historic district, offers a walkable, vibrant village atmosphere with dining, arts, entertainment, and shopping. This centrally located residential haven is an ideal place to find your next home.

Fifteen minutes from the airport and less than half an hour away from the capital city, East Greenwich offers a quaint residential feel close to where you need to be. The agents of Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty invite you to start exploring the town today.  Please visit our East Greenwich office, conveniently located at 572 Main Street, or call us at 401.884.5522.
