Please watch your mailbox for the 2016/2017 BHEF’s Annual Appeal Postcard.
 
Our new color postcard highlights BHEF contributions across the district thanks to the generous donations.  We’ve updated our list of 2015-2016 individual donors on our website - www.bhedfoundation.org .  The BHEF would love to add your name to our list.  The BHEF is grateful to every community member and local business that supports the efforts of the BHEF through donation and participation in our fundraising.  


 
All of the hands-on programs, community events and technology purchases would not be possible without your financial support and we hope that the postcard catches your eye and prompts you to support our Annual Fundraising Appeal for 2016-2017.   Every donation allows the BHEF to continue enhancing educational excellence in all of our schools for all of our students.  Thank you in advance for your support.
 
BHEF Tributes are a wonderful way to recognize teachers, principals, secretaries, guidance counselors, coaches, supervisors, aides, cafeteria staff, custodians and others in our educational community. To order a Tribute, please go to our website www.BHedFoundation.org. You will receive a Tribute card that can be signed by you or your child and proudly presented to each person honored with your donation. The BHEF will also present a special certificate to each person you have honored.
 
Tributes may be ordered at any time during the school year. However, submitting your order by December 2nd will ensure that you will receive Tribute cards before the Winter Recess. If you have any questions, please contact tributes@bhedfoundation.org .
 
On behalf of the Board of BHEF Trustees, we thank you for your continued support of our mission. A special thank you to our new sponsors: The Smith Chiropractic Foundation, Peak Medical and our longstanding partner Gabriele Fitness and Performance.
 
These local companies continue to partner with the Berkeley Heights Education Foundation, providing substantial financial support to our schools and community.
