Braintree Fund for Education, Inc.
What is the Braintree Fund for Education, Inc.?
The Braintree Fund for Education, Inc. (BFFE) is a non-profit organization, comprised of members from all 10 Parent Teacher Organizations, whose mission is to raise funds for the Braintree Public School System. The fund directly benefits the High School, East Middle, South Middle, Flaherty, Highlands, Hollis, Liberty, Morrison, Ross and the Integrated Pre-School.
What has the Braintree Fund for Education accomplished?
The BFFE has sponsored two fund raising events: The 2006 & 2007 Jim Plunkett Nights at Florian Hall in Dorchester. Combined, these two events raised over eighty thousand dollars. The 2006 event funded the wiring of every elementary classroom in the system for high speed internet access as well as purchasing 11 LCD projectors for Braintree High School, South Middle School and East Middle School. As a result of the 2007 event, 24 LCD projectors were purchased, installed and 24 teachers (see back of page for a list of recipients) received training on how to operate the projectors.
What are the future goals of the Braintree Fund for Education?
The BFFE will continue to support the advancement of technology within our schools. We also hope to establish a mini-grant program for our teachers to enhance the educational lives of their students.
