Each fall noncompetitive block grants are awarded to middle schools to fund outside of school programs for tutoring, access to technology, activities, and enrichment for students, or the Safe and Sound 4 Student Success (S4) Program.
While the academic opportunities are critical for students, the safe, structured school environment provides many students the haven to stay connected to school and interact with positive adult role models.
HOW TO APPLY:
Each May, middle schools submit their individual school plan for the following school year. In September BEF makes an award to each school based on available funds and student population, grants range from $3,000 to $7,500 depending on BEF’s prior year fundraising success.
Please contact the BEF office: (503) 643.7453 or email.
