Thank you for applying for a BEF Grant!
Grants are reviewed each month from September - January, and March - April. Grants submitted by the first of the month will be reviewed that same month. Grants submitted after the first may be reviewed the following month. We aim to review grants applications for $250 and less within 2 weeks of receipt.
Please understand that not all grants will be funded. The decisions are made by a committee and prioritize those grants that make a strong case that they are providing an exceptional educational experience for students. We attempt to distribute funds to all levels.
The BEF understands that BPS has recently gone through a round of reductions to address deficit spending. We will do our best to support as many innovative ideas that impact and learning for students as we are able. Due to the reductions, we anticipate that we will receive more requests than in years past and want to be clear that submitting a grant application does not guarantee that the BEF will provide funding towards the project. Thank you for your understanding as we work to provide as much support to BPS classrooms as possible.
