BEF Funding 2016-2017

The Benicia Education Foundation (BEF) is excited about the opportunity to focus exclusively on supporting the Benicia schools through educational enrichment and student programs. As we move from funding base needs to enrichment programs we have a whole new world of opportunities ahead of us. Now is your opportunity to support Benicia Schools with a donation or as a volunteer!

The BEF has chosen to focus on College and Career Readiness, working with the Benicia Unified School District to assure that there is A Healthy Path for Every Child! Here are some of the programs we are currently working on:

Elementary schools:

• Expanding the Creative Wheel Program

• Parent Education and Financial Planning

Middle School:

• Professional Development

• Parent Education Workshops

• Career Exploration

High School:

• College Visit Days

• Parent Education workshops


• Mini-grants offered to BUSD teachers and staff.

10th Anniversary Run Registration is Open

The Run For Education started in 2008, under the guidance of past BEF board member Maria Sloane, with 200 registered runners and a handful of sponsors. By 2011, under race director Teresa Zabrek, the run grew to over 1100 runners and volunteers  with 28 sponsors and the numbers remained steady for the following years. This year,  we celebrate 10 years of the BEF Run For Education and fundraising for Benicia schools. There are nine t-shirt designs created by artists, students and teachers and countless community volunteers that have offered their time to make the run successful over the years.. It is a special collaboration of the community, schools and business sponsors that make the run happen every year, a labor of love. Whether you volunteer or run , we hope you choose to celebrate the 10th Anniversary with us on April 23, 2017.
