The Foundation is our school’s primary fundraising organization. It is a non-profit, community and volunteer driven organization dedicated to equipping, enriching and empowering our students.
Beechwood Foundation supports the educational experience of the students of Beechwood School by funding programs that enable 21st Century Learning Standards. The Foundation supports improved student-to-teacher relationships, educational academies, experiential learning, the acquisition of technology, and the training and development of staff.
Why do we need a Foundation?
$26 million has been cut from the Fullerton School District budget over the last three years. An additional $7 million – possibly $13 million -will be cut this year alone. The Beechwood School Foundation seeks not only to backfill the cuts that are allocated to Beechwood, but also to expand our incredible academic programs and resources. Our Foundation dollars go entirely to our school.
Why do we still need a PTSA?
While the Foundation builds our academics, the PTSA builds our community and memories with family events,local outreach and team spirit- the other side of what makes our school extraordinary.
Why does the Foundation do the major fundraising?
The Beechwood School Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit with greater flexibility than the PTSA to raise funds and direct those resources toward outstanding academic programs.
If I donated last year,do I need to fill-out the paperwork again this year?
Does the Foundation accept matching funds from businesses?
YES! And all donations,individual or corporate, are tax deductible.
Do I still need to pay for field trips?
NO! Families used to pay busing and entrance fees for each and every field trip. Now,with the exception of overnight trips,all expenses are paid by the Foundation.
Do we need to meet our fundraising goals to guarantee Foundation programs for this year?
YES!! Our programs require year-to-year funding.
When will my donation to the Foundation start to benefit Beechwood?
Immediately!! The Foundation will provide over $100,000 in funding to Beechwood by October of this school year!
When do I need to return my Team Beechwood envelope?
If you are paying offline with cash or a check, we would like to have the completed forms back by September 30th. Online donations are accepted here.
