Nomination Instructions and Information 

For 2016 Nomination Forms




For years the Rockford Education Foundation (REF) has raised funds for grants during its annual Phone-a-Thon each February. But, our busy supporters aren’t often home to answer our call for support.

We are trying something new! REF will roll out an Email-a-Thon to make it easier for people to give to REF.

It’s simple…if you respond to the email, we won’t call you during the Phone-a-Thon the week of February 15.

But If you would prefer to give during Phone-a-Thon, we look forward to talking with you then.

It’s a way to help you “give as you live”… with a click on our website or by answering our call.
