About Our Organization
The Beatrice Educational Foundation, a non-profit corporation, was established in 1987 and was one of the first educational foundations in the state of Nebraska. The Foundation’s purpose is to provide a permanent source of financial source for the expansion and enrichment of learning opportunities for the Beatrice School District. The Foundation supports programs and activities to augment the educational experience, recognize distinction in public education, and to strengthen positive community relations. The 15-member Board of Trustees and selected Beatrice High School students work together to promote academic achievement and civic involvement through the encouragement and support of innovative and quality school programs. The Foundation manages a $1.9 million Endowment Fund and awards over $80,000 each year in scholarships to Beatrice High School seniors, over $6,000 in Teacher Grants and runs an after-school program.
This fall and past spring we saw just how important technology is to education when students and teachers were no longer meeting face to face and their only means of communication was through the magic of technology. While we hope this does not happen again I think we would all agree we need both students and teachers ready to learn remotely.
We are hoping you will help us continue our support of technology needs. We want to make sure that every child in Beatrice Public Schools has the necessary access to technology to continue learning especially if it becomes necessary to learn remotely. Educators stepped up and met the challenge last spring but also learned there is much that needs to be done to make sure all students continue to learn if they cannot be together in a classroom. Access to technology is a must. Access to the internet is a must. Your financial support will ensure that every child has the necessary equipment and access to the internet to allow them to continue learning during these unprecedented times.
One of the requests from teachers and administrators is for document cameras. The cost for a good quality document camera is $300. It allows teachers to do the following:
Each year more teachers request funding and each year the Beatrice Educational Foundation is only able to fund a portion of them. The Foundation would like to grant more of these requests. Teachers are on the front line and know what works best with students. All funds collected during The Big Give will be returned to teachers in the form of grants.
