BEEP is a tuition-based early education program, and as with all tuition-based programs, voluntary gift support is gratefully appreciated.
There are many giving opportunities available - what programs would you like to support?
The Faculty Fund
The Faculty Fund supports classrooms by providing funding for the many expenses not covered by the BEEP school budget. More than 95% of the tuition we pay goes toward personnel expenses, and only 3% is for classroom supplies. Many teachers spend upwards of $1000 per year out of pocket for special projects, activities, and supplementary materials in order to create the kind of classroom environment they (and we) desire for our children. The PTO strives to close this gap, and accordingly the Faculty Fund will provide support for classroom supplies, professional development, and technology not otherwise covered by the BEEP budget. With consultation from Interim Principal for Early Education, Regina Watts, PhD, the PTO will distribute Faculty Fund monies to ensure that PTO spending and BEEP tuition expenditures are coordinated and maximized as fully as possible.

If you would like your donation to benefit a fund (Faculty Fund, General Fund, Scholarship Fund, Other), please specify this in the "Special instructions" box.
