The fund has as its purpose to provide two annual scholarship awards to Bexley High School seniors who desire to continue their education beyond high school in a non-traditional setting, like a vocational setting or a two-year college degree program.

It provides for an annual college scholarship to a Bexley senior who has demonstrated outstanding achievement in English literature.

John & JoAnn Rohyans Sustainability Initiative Fund

This fund was established in 2009 by John and JoAnn Rohyans to focus on “going green” sustainability initiatives. The fund has supported a student rain barrel project, the “Seeds that Feed” community learning garden at Bexley High School, the purchase of reusable trays and a water bottle filling station for the Cassingham Café.

Charlene Morgan Emerging Leaders Fund

This fund was established by the BEF Board of Governors in April 2011 to honor the service of the first BEF Executive Director, Charlene Morgan.  The fund supports the BEF’s Youth Philanthropy Program which teaches Bexley High School juniors and seniors the process of philanthropic grant-making. To date, students in the program have awarded over $25,000 to student and teacher-initiated projects and programs within Bexley High School.
