Education group seeking guidance

The Natick Education Foundation, a nonprofit that supports the town’s school system, is asking residents to fill out an online survey to help it plan funding and grants for the next five years. The 15-question survey, at s.zoomerang.com/s/NEF-survey , asks participants for opinions on the organization’s grant-giving structure, and to rank by importance the types of programs and projects it should support. Since its founding in 1991, the foundation has donated $600,000 to Natick’s public schools, focusing on individual classroom grants supporting new and innovative projects, president Rosemary Driscoll wrote in an e-mail. More information is available on the foundation’s website, www.natickedfoundation.org.
