Fertile-Beltrami Education Foundation

Fertile-Beltrami Education Foundation The Foundation is a tax-exempt, non-profit corporation that allows caring and committed teachers, parents, businesses, community members, and alumni to give more to our children and the school.

The Fertile-Beltrami Education Foundation was started in 1996 and commitment of the Fertile-Beltrami community still remains for the children in the Fertile-Beltrami School District. It's evidenced by the establishment of the Fertile-Beltrami Education Foundation and the projects that it supports. The Foundation relies on the support of its community, members, and alumni--both local and extended. The Foundation is governed by a board that consists of teachers, community members-at large, and contributors. The Board meets approximately four times a year to review grant requests and to act on old and new business. The Board is very committed and excited to be a part of such a wonderful and growing entity of the Fertile-Beltrami Education system. We appreciate your support and interest in helping us continue our goal of promising the most innovative and quality education that can be offered to the students of Fertile-Beltrami Public School.

Mission: 1. Expand education opportunities beyond the basic curriculum. 2. Provide matching dollars for grants to fund special projects. 3. Increase programs for gifted and talented students. 4. Inspire students and teachers to pursue creative ideas that improve education.
