2019-20 BFEF Annual Funds Drive
The Benjamin Franklin Elementary Foundation (BFEF) supports the development of every student by identifying needs and raising funds to support evidence-based programs that promote engagement, creativity, educational excellence, environmental citizenship, and language and cultural enrichment. Our Foundation is ten years old this year!
BFEF allows Franklin to fundraise for things that the District can't afford: extra teaching assistants and interns, teacher supplies, farm-to-table environmental education, art and music classes, maintaining our green spaces, and more. Here is where the money goes:
- International Target Language Interns & Teaching Assistants: $76,000
- Teacher Supplies & Enrichment Support: $35,000
- Music & Visual Arts Teachers and Supplies: $31,000
- Learning Garden & Environmental Science Program: $26,000
...along with other programs such as STEAM Faire, Franklin Film Festival, Newspaper Club and more. We hope you'll be there for our kids as we kick off our annual funds drive! All proceeds are 100% tax-deductible and go DIRECTLY BACK TO THE SCHOOL. Please don’t forget to request corporate matching funds if they’re offered by your company.
