8th Annual Drive for Educational Excellence

No bubble is so iridescent or floats longer than that blown by the successful teacher. 
                                                                                   - William Osler

Dear Friends, 

The Bristol Warren Education Foundation (BWEF) helps bring luster to the hidden treasures in our children’s classrooms; the inspirational experiences and learning opportunities imagined and created by our exceptional teachers! This letter is an invitation for you to support us in providing the funds needed to allow these treasures to sparkle.

In support of our mission -- to promote student excellence in our public schools -- our organization provides grants to teachers in the Bristol Warren Regional School District. In this academic year, BWEF is funding over $60,000 across 24 teacher-led initiatives in all 6 district schools, including:

✓      Artist-in-Residence programs
✓      Science and nature programs, like Science Olympiad and Nature’s Classroom
✓      Hands-on exposure to the arts through theatre, music and art appreciation
✓      Programming promoting civic action and engagement

Our board of volunteers is committed to building on this success during this, our 11th year.

Join us as we work together to facilitate new learning opportunities in our schools through BWEF’s Annual Drive for Educational Excellence. Please consider a tax-deductible donation that will help bring more of these innovative opportunities to all Bristol Warren public school students. And mark your calendars now for these fun fundraising events…donate, volunteer, attend!

● Bee Seen: A Masquerade, the 10th Annual Bodacious Bee – March 10th, 2018

The Bristol Warren Education Foundation is a community-led organization dedicated to promoting student excellence in our public schools. Since 2007, as a direct result of your generosity, BWEF has awarded over $420,000 in enrichment grants to teachers and staff in every district school.

With sincere gratitude,


Nicky Piper

By broadening the fundraising efforts of our all-volunteer community organization,
we hope to be able to provide grant-supported educational activities to as many classrooms as possible.
During the 2017-18 school year BWEF is funding more than $60,000 in grants — since 2007 BWEF has funded more than $410,000 in grants. With your support, we can bring more music, more science, and more writing into our classrooms.
