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 BEFâ€™s Annual Fund, helps create educational experiences that shape the futures of Bexley students.
This fallâ€™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. â€œOur experiences with the Bexley Schools and with the BEF have been phenomenal,â€ said Sapp who added, â€œdonors to the BEF are investing directly in students and teachers — making the extraordinary possible.â€
This year the Annual Fund drive has a Lionâ€™s paw as itâ€™s symbol. Itâ€™s a symbol that represents both pride in the Bexley tradition of excellence and excitement about future possibilitiesâ€¦or in this case â€œpaws-ibilities.â€
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.
