Berkley Education Foundation

A Message from the BEF President

I am honored to serve as the President of the Berkley Education Foundation (BEF). Through the generosity of our community, and the efforts of many dedicated volunteers over the last decade, the BEF has invested more than $354,000 into the Berkley School District since 2010. 

These funds have gone directly into the classroom through teacher innovation-grants, supporting STEM activities with the annual Maxfield Science Symposium scholarships, and enrichment programs in every school. The BEF also sends every 8th grade student on a college tour annually. In October and November, the BEF sent 300 8th grade students from both Anderson and Norup to the University of Michigan to tour their Ann Arbor campus. This tour allows students to begin to envision their own post-Berkley options. For many, it is their first time in a college environment

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.
