The Boston Education Fund (BEDF) is a 501(c)3 K-12 education fund that has served as the fiscal sponsor for Boston Public Schools (BPS) since 1984. Over the past year, BEDF’s mission has expanded to include a strategic fundraising partnership with BPS to help advance educational equity and build philanthropic initiatives impacting the entire BPS school district.
We believe that at the heart of determining how to allocate resources and support should be a proactive collaboration with the community, focusing on communities that have been historically marginalized, excluded, and underrepresented.

What, Where, and When?
BEDF is thrilled to announce its inaugural fundraiser, Making Connections Mixer, scheduled for Tuesday, November 14, 2023, at Grace By Nia. This event aims to recognize, celebrate and appreciate the efforts of educators who work tirelessly to provide quality education to our BPS students. The mixer will also serve as a fundraiser to support BEDF's fundraising initiative, EdQuity Boston, dedicated to advancing educational equity in Boston by elevating the community voice through participatory budgeting to further BPS' strategic priorities.
You can look forward to an exciting lineup of engaging activities and experiences. With a silent auction, live entertainment, delectable food, and exciting raffles, the Making Connections Mixer promises to be an unforgettable evening.
Grace by Nia, in Boston's Seaport, is a modern-day supper club unlike any other venue in the city. This event is the first of its kind, offering a space of gratitude to BPS educators while uplifting local talents and partnerships in Boston's educational space.
