The Bexley Education Foundation is dedicated to providing opportunities for Bexley students of all ages to explore the boundaries of “What’s Possible.” Last year because of the generous support of Foundation donors, thousands of Bexley students benefitted from BEF classroom grants and were impacted by BEF enrichment programs

Any faculty or staff member in the Bexley City School District can apply for a BEF grant. The BEF awards grants annually in the fall and spring. Grants made in the fall support projects or programs in the current school year while grants made in the spring fund projects or programs in the following school year.

  • Collaborative programs and projects between teachers, grade levels, schools, etc.
  • Programs that impact a large number of students
