Bixby Educational Endowment Foundation Supports Bixby Schools
Supporters of the Bixby Educational Endowment Foundation (BEEF) are big believers in education and opportunity. Working with educators, community leaders, caring citizens, and through the efforts of many, more than $1.6 million in teacher grants and scholarships have been awarded by BEEF since the inception of the foundation.
In the 2017-2018 school year, over $167,000 was awarded to teachers and graduating seniors. BEEF grants support innovative educational projects which would not otherwise be possible with the level of state funding available to the public school students. Contributions promote excellence in all areas of learning, including reading, science, math, art, music and technology. (Learn more about the teacher grants awarded this year on the BEEF Facebook page.)
BEEF 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, BEEF has helped make a difference in the educational lives and futures of young people and the success is directly related to the support BEEF has received from benevolent donors.
2019 Century Club Campaign
Those interested in Bixby education are asked to be a part of the annual Century Club campaign by donating $100 to support teacher grants and student scholarships through BEEF. Mabrey Bank (formerly Citizens Security Bank) will match these donations, up to $15,000. With community support, BEEF has met this challenge for 32 years.
All levels of gifts are appreciated, and memorial contributions are welcomed. BEEF is a 501(c)3 charitable organization, governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. The administration expenses are less than one percent of the annual gross receipts. Donor tax-deductible contribution is a wonderful opportunity to invest in the future of Bixby’s children.
Century Club donations may be mailed to:
Bixby Educational Endowment Foundation
109 N. Armstrong, Bixby, OK 74008.
