About the Event
The Champions Sports Ball is an opportunity for the community to come together for a good cause! Funds raised will support the ever growing needs of our school district.
What This Year’s Funds Will 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”.
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.
