BWEF announces grants for 2021-2022 school year
July 3, 2021

The Bristol Warren Education Foundation (BWEF) is pleased to announce the funding of over $28,000 in educational grants for the 2021-2022 school year, bringing 12 academic enrichment programs designed by local educators to the Bristol Warren Regional School District.

Despite the cancellation of its premier annual fundraiser – The Bee – in 2020, the continued generosity and support of local residents and businesses throughout the year allowed the BWEF to fund the majority of the grant applications that were received. BWEF is also honoring the commitment to fully fund all approved grants from the 2020 – 2021 academic year that may not have been able to run due to the ongoing pandemic.

Programs were approved through a rigorous grant review process, and will engage students in the areas of Business, STEM, Social/Emotional Learning, Music, Writing, Media, Community Engagement, and Civics.

Since its founding in 2007, the BWEF has now funded nearly $650,000 in local school grants. BWEF is a nonprofit tax-exempt organization. Foundation board members are community and business leaders, parents, and alumni who donate their time and talents in order to promote the mission of the foundation.
