BCEF ‘Give Thanks’ fall campaign underway

Batesville, In. — The Batesville Community Education Foundation (BCEF) is sponsoring a “Give Thanks” fall campaign to honor Batesville Community School Corporation (BCSC) employees, according to BCEF executive director Anne Wilson. As the holiday season approaches, BCEF wants to recognize those individuals who are having a positive impact in the lives of BCSC students.

For a minimum donation of $10, any BCSC employee – past or present – can be thanked for a job well done. The donation deadline is Friday, November 10 in order to have a sign with the employee’s name placed outside the school before Thanksgiving.

Donate online at BatesvilleEducationFoundation.org/get-involved/honor-a-teacher/. Paper donation forms, which are available at every BCSC school building, can be mailed in, dropped off at the BCSC administration building, or returned to school.

“During our spring campaign, there were 94 staff members recognized, which is our most to-date,” Wilson noted. “We’re hoping to surpass 100 honorees this time. It’s a great way to thank a staff member and help students at the same time by donating to the foundation.”

The Batesville Community Education Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that was established to provide additional funding for innovative learning opportunities that go beyond the basics in academics, athletics, and the arts in the Batesville public schools, enhancing the educational environment for all students.
