19th Annual BEF Phone-a-thon Continues a Dialing Tradition

19th Annual BEF Phone-a-thon Continues a Dialing Tradition

The nineteenth Annual Beaverton Education Foundation Phone-a-thon┬áis being held October 17 – 26, 2017. This annual dialing tradition provides critical funds that support innovative educational programs for students in the Beaverton community. During the five-fun-filled nights, more than 350 student volunteers make over 30,000 phone calls, dedicating their time, energy and enthusiasm to supporting BEF programs.

Last year, BEF was able to fund 118 projects, serving 26,063 students. Through this funding from our supporters and community engagement, $314,900 was invested back into our schools. This year, these needs continue to increase as the Beaverton School District has grown from 51 to 53 schools.

The Phone campaign and the associated mailings are the Foundations largest fundraising activity of the year. Funds raised are reinvested in a wide variety of after and summer school programs for students at all of Beaverton public schools.
