I am honored to serve as the President of the Berkley Education Foundation (BEF) and as Honorary Chairperson for this year’s Dollars for the District Campaign. Through the generosity of our community, and the efforts of many dedicated volunteers over the last decade, the BEF has given back more than $300,000 to the Berkley School District.
That money has been invested throughout the years in elementary enrichment programs, teacher grants, college tours and student scholarships. We look forward to supporting our schools during COVID-19 learning through staff innovation-grants, dollars to support staff and students while remote learning and stepping in to fill financial gaps where needed.
During this holiday season, I would like to call on all my fellow parents, grandparents, guardians and community members to help us continue to support our children and provide opportunities for their growth. Your generosity will help us achieve our 2020 goal of raising $15,000. Please join me in making a donation to the BEF. Donating any amount to the Berkley Education Foundation, whether $25 or $2,500 will directly impact students in the Berkley Schools. Please help the BEF continue the essential work of enriching our students’ lives now and in the future.

The Berkley Education Foundation raises funds throughout the year with proceeds from honorariums, employee payroll contributions, our signature event “Off to the Races,” and more. However, the biggest part of our funding comes directly from you, our generous stakeholders, and we hope you’ll consider giving to the Berkley Education Foundation through our annual Dollars for the District giving campaign.
Whether a gift within your means is $25, $2,500 or somewhere in between, please be assured that your tax-deductible donation will go directly towards enhancing educational experiences for Berkley Schools students.
Your gift to the Berkley Education Foundation is 100% tax deductible to the extent of the law.
