Giving Tuesday Success!

On Giving Tuesday, Nov. 27, our community came together to champion Belchertown students and opportunities in Belchertown schools.  Through individual donations and the corporate match from Professional Drywall Construction, the BEF raised almost $4,500 towards our student success grant program. We are so inspired by the generosity of the Belchertown community!  We are nearly halfway to our goal of raising $10,000 by the end of the year to triple the impact of grants supporting students in Belchertown schools in 2019-2020. Thank you!
