The Education Foundation plays a vital role in enriching the lives of Berea City School District students by providing scholarships and grants that otherwise would not be possible. A great example of our grant-funded projects is Jean Hribar’s Wonder Workshop. The Education Foundation provided funding to purchase 6 sets of Dot and Dash robots, which will be used by groups of third and fourth grade students at Brook Park Memorial. The Wonder Workshop curriculum teaches coding as part of computer science education and is, as several students have noted, “more fun than recess.”
The Foundation is a separate nonprofit entity and does not receive funding from the Berea City School District. The funds that we raise come from a variety of sources including our Annual Auction and Car Raffle. However, it’s donors like you who can really make a difference. Please help us support this legacy by making a donation so we can continue our invaluable mission of Investing in Our Students.
Our mission is to invest in the students of the Berea School District by enhancing educational opportunities.
