Annie D. Jones
Child Enrichment Fund
The Annie D. Jones Child Enrichment Fund is a nonprofit organization designed to provide financial support for underprivileged children, age six through eight, who live in the East Smithfield community to participate in enrichment activities.
According to educational research, summer learning programs have the potential to help children and youth improve their academic and other outcomes. This is especially true for children from low-income families who might not have access to educational resources throughout the summer months and for low-achieving students who need additional time to master academic content. However, summer learning programs are often an afterthought of school districts or not offered at all, especially in restrictive funding environments
The Annie D. Jones Enrichment Fund exists to assist with providing opportunities for these children. Help us to help our children!
