The BEF is looking forward to two fundraisers in 2015. We will have two garden tours as part of the Cape Cod Hydrangea Festival. You can learn more about the festival by visiting the Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce Hydrangea Festsite. Our tours will be on the two Fridays during the festival, July 10th and July 17th. Details to come soon! (In the meantime, we're looking for two or three more gardens in the Centerville/Osterville/Marstons Mills area to be part of our tour on July 10th. Interested? Contact us!)
Our second event will be a road race run on Saturday November 14th. Details soon.
WE NEED YOU!
If you’ve made it to our website we’re thinking that you might have an important connection to the Barnstable Public Schools. This school system might have given you or your children a strong educational and personal experience that was beneficial later in life. Maybe it was a teacher who inspired you or your kids to take a risk, or believe that you could make a difference.
However you have arrived on this page, know this: in the past four years we’ve funded grants that ranged from grade school robotic kits to high school poetry slams. We’ve supplied podcasting equipment and Museum of Science engineering programs to the intermediate students. We’ve made it possible for teachers to take their students on field trips and buy equipment that ranges from choir robes to yoga mats and digital projectors.
You can make a major difference in the educational experience of students of today who will call Barnstable their alma mater tomorrow. Please help us continue and expand the work we have started.
To make a direct donation go to the Donate page or send a check payable to the Barnstable Education Foundation to our address below.
The children who will benefit from the programs, equipment, and experiences your donations provide may not be able to say “Thanks” but we do. We sincerely and deeply appreciate the difference you’re making with your donation.
We provide experiences and programs that aren't funded by tax dollars. Value? Priceless.
