Your Investment Makes a Difference

This is the Foundation’s 25th year of supporting students and teachers in our school district! The Foundation has awarded over $250,000 in scholarships to graduating seniors and more than $125,000 to support new and innovative ideas in the classroom.  The Foundation funds many other programs, including Student Needs, TeamMates Mentoring, Teacher Professional Development and more.

Last year the Foundation provided an additional $40,000 ($10,000 to each building) for playground improvements and fitness equipment and $10,000 to the Bennington Public Library for its expansion campaign.

What will funds raised this year be used for?

Our goal is to reach $30,000 so that we can help fund the “Leveled Readers for the Elementary Book Rooms and “TeamMates Scholarships”.
