About

The purpose of the Edith Stewart Chase Foundation is to grant emergency financial assistance to retired educators who confront an economic crisis.

The Foundation was established in 1994 under the will of Edith Stewart Chase who was a dedicated art teacher in the Waltham Public Schools.

The grants serve a wide range of needs from medical, dental, and hearing aids to replacement of windows, roof repairs, and asbestos removal.

If you, or someone you know, who is a member of the Retired Educators Association of Massachusetts (REAM), could benefit from the generosity of Edith Stewart Chase, please contact the Foundation office for an application.
