The Einstein Project is a non-profit organization that partners with schools, businesses, and communities to provide leadership and support for science education in Wisconsin.

We began our relationship with the Einstein Project four years ago when they approached us to fund their Wheels in Motion project. We did that over a period of three years and were impressed with the professionalism of their operation, staff and board of directors. They provide excellent hands-on curriculum in the schools; programs that might not otherwise be available. We are a major sponsor of their annual Butterflies and Friends Auction which draws a large number of area supporters and is a very successful event that the community always looks forward to. Part of that success is the fact that they make the auction pieces available to the community for viewing. It is great exposure for them and the artists and gives the opportunity for citizens in the community to view the fine pieces of art.

Festival Foods partners with The Einstein Project each year for the Grocers on the Green Golf Outing. The event raises funds through event sponsorship, which in turn are donated to The Einstein Project. Through all phases of the planning and event execution the Einstein associates and volunteers were great to work alongside. The event was a huge success agian this year and there is no one more deserving of this donation than The Einstein Project.

Eight years ago I was asked to meet with The Einstein Project to evaluate whether my company should or could partner with their organization. Going into the meeting, I was not optimistic about the possibilities. After that meeting and a few more, I was really able to see where the organization had come from, what it was currently doing and the vision they had. I was so impressed that we took on the Title Sponsor role of their largest fundraiser. It has been seven years of sponsorship and both the organization and our relationship have continued to grow. The impact that this organization has had on the youth that go through its program is phenomenal. Research has shown that the interest and knowledge of students in science has gone up dramatically, but equally as impressive scores in other areas of school improved significantly as well. The Einstein Project is a truly unique organization that is doing tremendous things in our communities!
