Annual Fund supports excellence

What does it take to maximize the potential of each Bexley student? Great teachers, a supportive school community, engaging learning opportunities and you. Your gift to the BEF’s Annual Fund, helps create educational experiences that shape the futures of Bexley students.

This fall’s Annual Fund campaign is being led by BEF Board Vice Chair, Ted Sapp and BEF Board Member, Amy Wagenbrenner. Both are parents of current Bexley students and graduates. “Our experiences with the Bexley Schools and with the BEF have been phenomenal,” said Sapp who added, “donors to the BEF are investing directly in students and teachers — making the extraordinary possible.”

This year the Annual Fund drive has a Lion’s paw as it’s symbol. It’s a symbol that represents both pride in the Bexley tradition of excellence and excitement about future possibilities”¦or in this case “paws-ibilities.”

Last year, thanks to gifts made to the Annual Fund by current parents, parents of alumni, alumni, teachers and community members, the BEF was able to award over $79,000 in classroom grants, provide $22,750 in scholarships and provide programs that supported creativity and innovation.
