Supporters of the Bixby Educational Endowment Foundation (B.E.E.F.) are big believers in education and opportunity. Working with educators, community leaders, caring citizens, and through the efforts of many, over a million dollars in teacher grants and scholarships have been awarded by B.E.E.F. since the inception of the foundation. In the 2014-2015 school year, over $146,700 was awarded to teachers and graduating students in the form of grants and scholarships. B.E.E.F. is the proud recipient of the Oklahoma Foundation for Excellence "2005 Medal for Excellence" and received a Local Education Foundation Outstanding Program Award for its' scholarship and mentoring programs and for the Century Campaign fundraiser. As a foundation we have helped make a difference in the educational lives and futures of young people and know that success is directly related to the support we receive from people like you.
Since 1985, Citizens Security Bank (now Mabrey Bank) has presented a contribution challenge to the foundation for a matching funds campaign. An instant success, the annual contribution campaign continues every fall. Prospective donors are invited to be part of the Century Club membership by donating $100 to B.E.E.F, and up to $15,000 will be matched dollar for dollar by Mabrey Bank. These funds are used for teacher grants and provide funding for educational projects for reading, science, math, art, music, and other subjects. Examples of past funding are: purchasing of classroom SMARTBoards, portable computer labs, sports equipment, a baby grand piano for the music department, art supplies, scientific microscopes, and much, much more.
We invite you to consider being a part of the Century Club campaign. We also encourage and receive many memorial contributions. B.E.E.F. is an independently-operated 501C3 tax-deductible charitable organization, governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. Our administration expenses are less than 1% of our annual gross receipts. Your tax-deductible contribution is a wonderful opportunity to invest in the future of our children and can be mailed to 109 N. Armstrong, Bixby, OK 74008. Join us in making Bixby Public Schools education a TRADITION OF EXCELLENCE..."Simply the Best"!
Thank you for your consideration.
