BEF reflects on 2012 success

BROWNSBURG — As the Brownsburg Education Foundation (BEF) reminisces about 25 years gone by, members are also looking back on a 2012 that may have exceeded any other year, which means more grants for teachers and more scholarships for students through various fundraising efforts.

“This year reinforced more than ever that we truly, as a community, Enhance Education Together. That’s our motto,” said Diane Brown, president of the BEF. “But for us, in this anniversary year, that has shown to be how we can truly make an impact. We had community businesses step up to sponsor our inaugural gala so all the proceeds raised that evening went to classroom grants and student scholarships. We had new sponsors pledging at all different levels for all of our events and returning sponsors step up in their giving. We had new volunteers who contacted us as a result of our newsletter.

“In 2012 we named our gala the All in for Education Gala to represent the community coming together, being ‘all in’ to support and celebrate education in our community. Truthfully, not only did we see that the evening of the gala, we’ve seen that happen all year long. The community passion and involvement with our foundation’s mission this year has been outstanding. It has been a wonderful way to honor the legacy of our founders.”

The Drive One 4 Ur School program saw record success and the Yankee Candle fundraiser that is just wrapping up has been so helpful to the company that they this year even created special Brownsburg Bulldogs candles as a thank you to the BEF for making that their yearly highest fundraiser.

Through these and more events, like the support of the Kiwanis Club, a boot camp event that donated $5 for every registration to the BEF, and more, they were able to show a steady increase in giving from 2011, both individually and from a corporate perspective, as well as grow the endowment in 2012.
