In a final push to bolster its fund-raising ledger for 2013, the nonprofit Wellesley Education Foundation’s board of directors will match all donations this month up to $18,000, officials said. The board, which has about 40 active members, is hoping the campaign will raise both funds and awareness for the organization, which supports efforts to enhance educational programs and foster innovation in the town’s schools, according to a statement by representatives. They said the foundation will accept and match donations of appreciated stock and securities as well as cash, and contributions can be made in the name of a Wellesley teacher or staffer to show appreciation for local educators. Last year, representatives said, the Wellesley Education Foundation allocated more than $215,000 in grants for the public schools, including $70,000 for the 1:1 technology pilot expansion and $25,000 for the district’s strategic plan initiative. The foundation has also organized the Wellesley Spelling Bee for the past 24 years, and is planning to host a science, technology, engineering and math expo in April.
