Belchertown Education Foundation Debut at the Belchertown Fair September 22-24!
The Belchertown Education Foundation is making its debut at this year’s fair with a booth full of fun and prizes. Responding to the fiscal constraints experienced by our school system, parents and community members have come together with a common purpose to provide grants and awards that help our schools and teachers meet the diverse needs of students. The Belchertown Education Foundation has a ...mission of supporting the academic, artistic, and athletic pursuits of Belchertown's children as they develop into well-educated and well-rounded young adults. We have established a board of directors and the organization's not-for-profit 501(c)3 status is pending.
Many local communities enrich their schools through education foundations and we’re excited to share that Belchertown is now doing this, too.
The Belchertown Education Foundation is self-funded and dependent upon generous contributions from community members, businesses, school alumni and families. Please consider making a donation in the Foundation’s inaugural year as an investment in our students and the future of this community.
Stop by our fair booth for fun games and amazing prizes including an X-Box Kinect and a Laser Tag party for 10. Share your contact information to get involved in future Foundation events. Look for the booth with the big blue ribbons and learn more about our mission to enrich the educational experience of students in Belchertown Public Schools. The booth will be staffed by the Foundation board members who would like to hear what’s important to you. See you at the fair!
The Belchertown Education Founation Board looks forward to meeting you and sharing more about our mission to enrich the educational experience of students in the Belchertown Schools, through the generous support of our community.
