Support the Beverly Education Foundation

Giving to the Beverly Education Foundation

When you support BEF, you make an immediate and lasting impact in Beverly Public Schools. Your donation allows funding which inspires students, drives teacher innovation, pilots new educational programs, and supports equal access and educational opportunities for all.  Make a donation so we may continue providing grants to help support new learning opportunities and programs for all students.  When you support BEF, you enrich the intellectual, social, and emotional development of our children.  And, you contribute to the excellence of Beverly Public Schools. There’s no better investment in our future. It has been another extraordinary year for the Beverly Education Foundation. Your support and participation are gratefully acknowledged. Starting this year, take advantage of the NEW Massachusetts Charitable Deduction.  Every charitable donation you make can be deducted from your Massachusetts income tax return, even if you do not itemize on your Federal return!
