BEF achieves its mission in many ways. Through classroom grants, scholarships, staff awards and corporation-wide initiatives, BEF positively impacts the students, teachers, and the community.

STAFF AWARDS | $2,500
In addition to the classroom grants and student scholarships, the Brownsburg Education Foundation supports special awards acknowledging outstanding efforts tied to our mission of promoting excellence, creativity, and innovation in the BCSC educational environment.
LOG CABIN HOMESTEAD PROJECT | $5,000
The Log Cabin Homestead is a one-room home reflective of the mid-1800's located on the 310 Stadium Drive property. Students role-play what it would have been like to be a pioneer child while individuals dressed in period costume teach a developed curriculum. Students also participate in additional hands-on and interactive activities that bring history to life as they learn about the beginnings of our community.
SENIOR PROJECT GRANTS | $3,000
Each year, seniors in certain cadre classes spend the year learning through internships and on-the-job training. They work to complete senior projects about their experiences or in addition to these experiences. Senior projects are then presented at the end of the year to a panel of teacher judges. These projects help students gain 21st century skills through experiential learning.
2019 FAST TRACK PROGRAM | $3,000
Fast Track helps to put BCSC students on the right path by giving them the supplies they need for the new year. BCSC employees joined with community and faith-based leadership from Brownsburg for the seventh annual event at East Middle School on July 27, 2019. Over 720 students were served with school supplies from these community and faith-based organizations. Students were greeted by a school counselor and visited with representatives from these local organizations. Students were offered a free haircut along with other services, plus a chance to complete their school supply list with the help of a volunteer. After their backpacks were full, the students and their families played games, got their faces painted, and ate breakfast served by the BCSC kitchen staff volunteers.
