2021 Annual Appeal for Educational Excellence


Education is the Most Powerful Weapon which you can use to change the world.

Grants in Action - Generation Citizen

Dear Friends,

The Bristol Warren Education Foundation (BWEF) 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 more than $700,000 in enrichment grants to educators and staff in every district school.

BWEF supports our educators as they amaze us with their passion and creativity. As budgets become tighter, and the need for support increases, we are committed to working harder than ever to fund innovation in our schools. When we work as a community, the potential is boundless!

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, all grants funded for 2019 and 2020 (but delayed due to Covid) will be executed. In addition, amazing new programming from our educators will be presented across all 6 district schools energizing educational activities:

  • Innovative Science, Technology, Math and Reading programs
  • Artist and Author in Residence programs
  • Hands-on exposure to the arts through theatre, music and art appreciation
  • Programming promoting civics education
  • Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) support
  • Problem Based Learning (PBL) initiatives
  • Career and Technical Education (CTE) improvements

Our all-volunteer Board of Directors is committed to building on this success during our 15th and perhaps most challenging year.

Please 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 and join the team! Especially in these challenging times, we need more of these innovative opportunities for all Bristol Warren public school students.

With sincere gratitude on behalf of all of BWEF,

Darcy DaCosta
BWEF Board Chair
