The mission of the OCEF is to identify and implement innovative strategies and activities to support and develop educational opportunities and programs for students attending our public schools. Recent programs, funded by OCEF, include the building of a state of the art observatory at the High School and the support of Project Purple, an anti-substance campaign created by former NBA player Chris Herren.

In addition to sponsoring educational opportunities, the Ocean City Educational Foundation funds a mini-grant program. These grants support classroom projects, field trips and any classroom equipment needed. Past grants awarded by OCEF included a dance floor for OCHS Dance Fitness Program, two new scoreboards in the Intermediate School gymnasium and paperless writing tablets for the Special Education department of Ocean City Primary School.
