BEF Funds Grants Worth $37,000

Reactions like the one from Prairie Mountain teacher Jenifer Gerlach will be repeated throughout Bethel when $37,000 in BEF grants are handed out on November 16.

The winners haven’t been notified yet, but the Bethel Education Foundation will soon be awarding 38 grants worth $37,302.

More than half of the grant submissions will be funded, promising more opportunities to enhance the educational opportunities for students throughout Bethel School District.

BEF representatives will be traveling from school to school to surprise teachers with the grant awards on Thursday, November 16.

This will be the earliest the BEF has been able to award the funds, with the intent of allowing the grants to make a difference for students as soon as possible. The BEF has funded nearly $200,000 in grants since being established in 2009 by a group of active and caring Bethel parents.
