Background Statement

For the past 21 years, the mission of the Beverly Education Foundation, Inc. has been to enhance and enrich public education in Beverly, Massachusetts. Our Board is comprised of a network of volunteers, parents, educators, students, and community members and businesses and we seek to promote inclusive educational excellence and equal access to educational opportunities. Our goal is to close the achievement gap for our lower income students and to bring schools and citizens together, to continually improve public education, to help our schools teach children to strive for excellence, to open young minds, and to expand the horizons of knowledge. Since inception, the Beverly Education Foundation has raised over $455,000.00, awarded 161 Grants and Mini-Grants, funded over $346,000.00 in Grants and Book Awards, has disbursed $97,250.00 to the Beverly High School 1 to 1 Learning Initiative and has subsidized 1,156 BHS students to help bridge the digital divide.

Impact Statement

With generous donor support, the Beverly Education Foundation has had another remarkable year. We awarded 20 Teacher/Parent Grants for the 2018-2019 school year totaling $12,116.00, donated $15,000 to support the 1 to 1 Learning Initiative at the Beverly High School, and honored over 200 teachers and two entire schools in our Annual Honor a Teacher Campaign. We invited all educators from public, private, and parochial schools to attend a STEAM Summit to collaborate and share best practices and ideas in STEAM. Our Distinguished Speakers Series this October of 2018 featured Bill Cummings, founder of Cummings Properties and Cummings Foundation. He spoke about his book, “Starting Small and Making It Big, An Entrepreneur’s Journey to Billion-Dollar Philanthropist” and how important it is to give back to local organizations and communities. Together with Stephen Drohosky, Vice-President of Cummings Properties, Mr. Cummings viewed many student enterprises and businesses at the Beverly High School including the Accomplish and Launch Programs, the Culinary Arts Club, History of Beverly class, Business Entrepreneur class, and the DECA Marketing class.


Needs Statement

The Beverly Education Foundation’s top 5 needs are Board outreach and development to recruit and grow a talented pool of people to assist in the mission of the Foundation; to obtain committed volunteers to lead specific projects like alumni outreach and distinguished speaker series; to provide better communications and information in all formats to promote greater understanding of the Beverly Education Foundation and its mission to the City leadership, School District, principals, PTO presidents, families and community; to provide inclusive educational excellence to support the Beverly High School’s 1 to 1 Laptop Initiative by subsidizing laptops to support 21st century teaching and learning; and to continue to grow the endowment fund to insure of continued vitality of the Foundation for future generations.

CEO Statement

The Beverly Education Foundation does not have a CEO or an Executive Director.  I have served as Treasurer of the Foundation for 15 years and now serve as the Vice-President.  In my opinion, the uniqueness of the Beverly Education Foundation is its small group of dedicated volunteers who carry out the vision and mission of supporting quality public education in Beverly.  We focus on being lean to obtain the greatest advantage of our tax exempt donations and we work with community partners like Montserrat School of Art in producing a Mobile STEAM event in the neighborhood for  elementary students who are bused to school.  We have also worked with Endicott College in hosting a STEAM Summit for all schools in Beverly -  public, private, and parochial to discuss and collaborate on best practices for teaching and learning of STEAM.    
Anna T Green, Vice-President

Board Chair Statement

As President of the Beverly Education Foundation since inception, I am proud of our very lean operation with great volunteers; however, that is difficult to sustain.  Many wish to volunteer in their own schools/sports to directly affect their own children versus volunteering with the Foundation for opportunities to affect city wide public education.  Name recognition and “marketing” are down from in the past.  Attempts to bring them up will cost money.  We wish to spend the money on the grants, not on advertising.  We need more/new board members; however, we lose out to the much larger entities such as the local YMCA and Main Streets.  The reason I choose to volunteer is because of the GREAT programs we support.  I get a view of ALL the schools and the programs taking place in those schools.  The Beverly Education Foundation helps to continue those programs through funding – AND – we have a great “view” into what is working at a given school.  Given something that is working, we try to help spread the word to allow other schools to also have that successful program.   
 

We have the ability to bring the community together by raising the profile of public education through keynote speakers events
and lectures that inform and benefit teachers, parents and students alike. Another avenue for the community to
acknowledge our teachers is the annual Honor A Teacher campaign. Most recently we have begun to help shape the future through the financial support for the 21st century 1 to 1 Learning Initiative at Beverly High School.

Programs

1 to 1 Learning Initiative

The 1 to 1 Learning Initiative at Beverly High School (BHS) is a program where every student has a laptop in wireless classrooms. This program commenced in 2011 and has been met with great excitement and enthusiasm by both teachers and students. The Beverly School District is placing key 21st century learning tools in the hands of Beverly High School students for use anytime, anywhere. The 1 to 1 Learning Initiative  enables each student to:
 
•Learn at their own pace with tools that complement their learning style and educational interests.
•Communicate with potentially millions of other students for a global educational opportunity.
•Review materials covered in class via on-line portals maintained by their teachers 24/7.
•Connect in-school education with “real world environment”.
•Access the vast on-line resources available to enhance true digital learning.
 
The BHS 1 to 1 laptop program is in its 7th year of great success. While the participation approaches 98%, many students struggle financially to participate in the lease to own program. Either they cannot make their payments on a regular basis or cannot afford the program at all and use loaners during the school day. The Beverly Education Foundation has provided over $97,250.00  for the 1 to 1 Learning Initiative. The Foundation helps bridge the digital divide by providing subsides for students and families who could not afford them otherwise. This funding allows each student a laptop while maintaining the philosophy that all must have skin in the game.  The 1 to 1 is once again an Apple Distinguished Program for Innovation.  Increased technology integration has resulted in more awards for BHS Media classes for student work.

Budget  15,000
Category  Science & Technology, General/Other Computer & Information Science
Population Served Adolescents Only (13-19 years) K-12 (5-19 years) Adolescents Only (13-19 years)
Program Short-Term Success 
As of the last published enrollment numbers, there are 1,300 students at Beverly High School. For the 265 students who meet the federal guidelines for the free and reduced lunch program, the price to lease a laptop is subsidized. Even with this price reduction in place, not all students can afford to participate.
The Beverly Education Foundation's aim is to promote inclusive educational opportunities and equal access to educational opportunties.  We do so by providing subsidies to these students.  In addition to subsidizing those at the federal poverty level for the 1 to 1 Laptop Initiative, the Foundation is working to provide an additional financial subsidy for those families that do not meet the federal guidelines for free and reduced lunch subsidies, but nevertheless cannot afford to participate in the lease to own option. Within the city of Beverly, 40% of households fall into the digital divide. Those in the digital divide are far less likely to have access to technology than those who make an annual household income above $75,000.00 (National Telecommunications & Information Administration, “Falling Through the Net: Defining the Digital Divide”). Beverly Public School District believes that every child, regardless of family income, should be eligible to participate in 21st Century Learning. The barrier is financial. The Beverly Education Foundation provides the necessary funds to put technology into the hands of every Beverly High School student so that no child will be left in the digital divide.
Program Long-Term Success  Beverly was provided a unique and a once in a lifetime opportunity when the City of Beverly and the Beverly Public School leadership decided to build and design a new high school. With a new high school being designed, the ability to construct a truly 21stCentury facility was presented. Beverly city and school leadership saw the potential and immediately began to incorporate into the design plans items to support 21stCentury learning.                                  

During research and travels, new schools constructed without computer labs were of great interest. At these schools, computers and technology were available everywhere via a wireless platform and is reflective of the way the workplace exists today. This difference allows teachers to seamlessly incorporate technology into the curriculum as technology can be viewed as the pen and paper of our time.

The benefit to education is that learning may occur any time, all the time, rather than marching down to the computer room to use technology. Besides the strong educational benefits, the cost savings in construction and energy resulted in the new Beverly High School building being LEED certified.

Program Success Monitored By 
The success of the 1 to 1 Learning Initiative can be seen in the high rate of subscriptions for the lease to own program.  All students have benefited from the 1 to 1 Learning Initiative and the excitement of both teachers and students for teaching and learning is indeed palpable at the Beverly High School.
Examples of Program Success 
Please check out a video made by Beverly High School students detailing the difference the Learning Initiative program is having already on teaching and learning at https://mybhsonline.org/groups/bhstechnologyinitiative/

In the very specific, literal sense, the impact of the 1 to 1 Learning Initiative has been immediately felt by many with special learning needs. For example, ready access to digitized text has helped students with disabilities access the curriculum to keep pace with their peers. Students with low vision disabilities can increase the font size of text, students with reading disabilities can use the text to speech feature, and students with organizational issues can highlight and organize text to help study for tests.  English language learners are able to leverage the multimedia tools on their laptops to help them master and learn English.  



 

 

Greening the Grid with Viridian Energy

The mission of Beverly Education Foundation is to stimulate inclusive educational excellence in the Beverly Public Schools; we are aided in that mission by our partnership with Viridian Energy, which provides customers with a green energy alternative to their electricity supplier, and also donates $2 per customer to the Foundation each month. Visit www.viridian.com/bef to sign up.  These funds, and others we raise, allow us to contribute to the quality of education in Beverly, and to equal opportunity for the 25% of students in the district who qualify for a free or reduced lunch. For example, we fund the participation of children from this disadvantaged population in ‘Nature’s Classroom’, an annual week-long, off-site environmental education program for 6th graders. The program helps build community, together with awareness of the environment and its protection. We were proud to support the composting program which students returning from ‘Nature’s Classroom’ established at Briscoe Middle School.
Budget  $500.00
Category  Environment, General/Other Energy Resources
Population Served General/Unspecified Families Adults
Program Short-Term Success 
This partnership will assist in our focus on environmental education and offering energy alternatives which help educate all residents in Beverly and allows them to use Viridian as their energy supplier.
Program Long-Term Success 
The ultimate change resulting from this partnership will be the greening of the electrical grid, thereby reducing the amount of greenhouse gases and providing alternatives to electrical consumers.
Program Success Monitored By 
Our program will be successful if more people sign up with Viridian.  The Beverly Education Foundation receives money to further invest in funding our programs.
Examples of Program Success 
The more people signing up for this greening of the grid and alternative energy sources, the more funding we receive to further our mission.

Honor A Teacher

The Beverly Education Foundation’s annual Honor A Teacher
event supports all educators including teachers, paraprofessionals, ESP, and librarians. Donations of $25.00 may be made in the name of that special teacher who have made a difference. A certificate is sent to the teacher indicating both the donation in their name as well as how important they have been in the student’s life. Many parents attach comments to the donation about why they are honoring this teacher. With a donation of $10.00 or more made in the name of the teacher honored, a card will be sent to the teacher indicating the parents’ thanks for all the time, effort and caring they have given the student throughout the year. In memoriam donations are thoughtful way to let the families of deceased students, teachers and administrators know that their loved ones have made a difference in Beverly education (donation of $15.00 or more).

Budget  7,000
Category  Education, General/Other Elementary & Secondary Education
Population Served K-12 (5-19 years)
Program Short-Term Success 
The short term success of this program is the ability to help fund the Teacher/Parent Grants each year from the donations which we receive.
Program Long-Term Success 
The Honor A Teacher program has contributed to the development and wherewithal of the Beverly Education Foundation's Grants program as well as showcasing the wonderful and diverse set of educators which we have in the Beverly Public Schools. It has also promoted and highlighted the teachers and their life of work in teaching.
Program Success Monitored By 
The program success is monitored by how each year we continue to increase the donations of the Honor A Teacher campaign.
Examples of Program Success  One example of how people have participated in this annual event is from an elderly woman who wrote of her bookkeeping teacher and what an inspiration he was to her throughout her life. 

Teacher/Parent Grants

The Beverly Education Foundation’s Teacher/Parent Grants highlight a private commitment to innovation in public education.  Grants are awarded once a year in the spring, for initiatives for the following academic year which are aligned with and enhance and enrich the curriculum. The Beverly Education Foundation looks to encourage and support collaborative efforts among teachers, administrators, parents, and community organizations. We seek to maintain a focus on innovation while linking the grants to system-wide goals and we support major grants that impact a significant number of students.  Grant proposals must demonstrate the potential to impact students, educators, and the community beyond its initial scope for lasting benefit. The Beverly Education Foundation supports grants which include a feasible plan for establishing a secondary pool of beneficiaries and the re-use of materials and equipment purchased within the grant. The Beverly Education Foundation provides feedback to grant applicants through the grants review process and through the follow-up reports once the grant has been completed.

Budget  10,000
Category  Education, General/Other Elementary & Secondary Education
Population Served K-12 (5-19 years) K-12 (5-19 years) K-12 (5-19 years)
Program Short-Term Success 
The immediate outcomes of the Grants program is the infusion of creativity and innovation on a yearly basis to encourage teaching and learning.
Program Long-Term Success 
Since 2002, the Beverly Education Foundation's Teacher/Parent Grants program has funded over $338,000.00 in over 161 Grants and Mini-Grants.  Proposals are encouraged which address enhanced content, creativity, and excitement across all curricula programs in Beverly Public Schools.  The Beverly Education Foundation will support the innovative and creative ideas of our teachers and parents that enhance teaching and learning in a 21st century global environment in the following areas:

1) Civics and history (proposals which generate greater awareness of federal, state, and local government and history providing insight into American life, national identity, and cultural expression).

2) Literacy, oral and written presentation of research, findings and conclusions at the K-5 level and middle school level (proposals which support reading, writing, and literacy);

3) Professional development for teachers to improve social and emotional knowledge and awareness of students, to enhance skills, and boost enthusiasm of teaching (proposals which develop new strategies of teaching targeting anxious and reluctant learners and which promote educational leadership, growth, and renewal for teachers and students); 

4) Digital literacy and use of technology to enhance and enrich learning in all grades; Director of Technology must approve the proposal before being submitted; 

5) Science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics, particularly in its application to everyday life; and

6) Fluency in required Mass Curriculum Frameworks, Common Core, and effective study skills at all levels and grades for all students to close the achievement gap. 
Program Success Monitored By 
The Beverly Education Foundation has each grant recipient commit to reporting at the completion of the grant to account for funds and to assess whether they met their goals for the grant.  A grant funding report is filed at the end of each grant cycle assessing the outcomes and the long and short term successes of each grant.
Examples of Program Success 
One program that the Beverly Education Foundation has been a proud sponsor of is the Beverly High School Advanced Placement Art Studio course.  This course has a multi-visit program with the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem.  Students are exposed to new techniques, concepts, and cultural  awareness through the artists' works.  The course ends with a Student Exhibition at the Peabody Essex.  This year's exhibition included the student's use of technology in creating their exhibition invitation as well as Podcasts on their visits and work.  This program has resulted in more than one paid internship position for students taking this course and is the only course of its kind on the North Shore.

Textile Recycling with Baystate Textiles

There is a dropbox located at the McKeown building in Beverly. Residents may dispose of unwanted clothing, shoes, linens, accessories, and stuffed animals that otherwise would have been thrown out. Baystate Textiles picks up the items and pays the Beverly Education Foundation based on the weight. That money is re-invested in additional learning, enrichment, and professional development programs for the Beverly Pre-School at McKeown students.

This ongoing recycling program is win-win for everyone involved.
Not only does the Beverly Education Foundation earn extra revenue ($100 for every ton of textiles), but the city of Beverly benefits as well. Dumping fees are on the rise and the city needs to reduce costs wherever they can. This program takes tons of waste out of the general waste stream which provides the city significant savings in tipping fees ($74 per ton). It is also a win for the environment as a whole. By recycling textiles, not only are they kept out of the waste stream, but we save the natural resources used in manufacturing them.

The Beverly Education Foundation is proud to participate in this partnership with Baystate Textiles along with the Beverly Pre-School at McKeown.
Budget  $0.00
Category  Environment, General/Other Recycling
Population Served Families Children and Youth (0 - 19 years) Children and Youth (0 - 19 years)
Program Short-Term Success 
As Beverly prepares for a pay as you throw system, this program offers an easy way to promote awareness of how easy it is to recycle textiles. 
Program Long-Term Success 
The ultimate change that will result from this partnership with Baystate Textiles is providing awareness that  95% of textiles which are clean and dry may be reused or recycled. 
Program Success Monitored By 
Further program success will be seen by an increase in the tons diverted, by more collections taking place throughout Beverly, and by the increase of reusing and recycling post-consumer textiles.
Examples of Program Success  Since inception of this program, the Beverly Education Foundation has helped divert in excess of 9 tons of textiles from the waste stream and helps benefit our wonderful Beverly Pre-School at McKeown.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

The challenge that the Beverly Education Foundation is facing is the recruitment of a talented pool of people to allow the Foundation to grow in scope and mission. Towards that end, current board members have been focusing on advancing the name and reputation of the Foundation through funding innovative grants throughout the District, by inviting guest speakers to raise the profile of public education, promoting environmental awareness and responsibility, honoring educators, and highlighting our efforts to provide inclusive educational opportunities for all students of all levels of learning. Although we are a very small organization, we have been able to fund over $338,000.00 in grants including 21st century teaching and learning.

Financial summary data in the charts and graphs above is per the organization's 990-EZs and data from the Form PCs on file with the state of MA. Contributions from foundations and corporations are listed under individuals when the breakout was not available. 

Impact

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results.
