Caring for Our Community
Whether you are a parent of a student in need of post secondary education support, a teacher with a classroom need, or an individual passionate about making our community a better place for everyone to work, live and grow TAEF is here to help you realize these needs and offer their support.
The mission of the Thornapple Area Enrichment Foundation is to cultivate a strong community now and forever.
