Grant Guidelines

The Branchburg Education Foundation (BEF) is a nonprofit organization that supports the Teachers and Staff of the Branchburg Public Schools and Somerville High School by funding innovative programs that are not provided through the annual school budget. These programs are offered to provide enhanced learning experiences and opportunities for all students to learn and develop outside of the core classroom setting. The BEF relies on and works in conjunction with parents, teachers, school administration and the community to achieve our goals.

WHEN DECIDING GRANTS TO FUND, BEF FOCUSES ON THOSE THAT:

  • Provide funding for innovative, creative, and enhanced educational experiences and opportunities;
  • Maximize the number of students reached for the cost of a program;
  • Complement school curriculum.

ITEMS NOT SUPPORTED INCLUDE:

  • Curriculum mandated requirements;
  • School infrastructure items;
  • Expendable items such as pencils, t-shirts, flags;
  • Teacher stipends;
  • Transportation;
  • Field trips.

 

GRANT SUBMISSION DEADLINES: 60 days prior to the program. Please submit your grant as early as possible as funds may become limited by the end of the school year; at which time, BEF may take into account the equity/balance of grants funded across the schools and/or grades. Note change: no grants will be considered if received after June 1 of the current school year.

We look forward to receiving your grant request!
