Welcome to the Burlington Education Foundation

Welcome to the Burlington Education Foundation! We hope that you enjoy browsing our website, and that you find a lot of useful information. 

The BEF's Mission is to channel donations from businesses and individuals to provide Burlington educators with an additional source of funding for creative and innovative curriculum enrichment programs.


Here’s a creative way to thank special teachers, faculty, or students for their hard work!

As another school year ends and you’re thinking about a special thank you for your child’s teachers, try a unique approach!

The Burlington Education Foundation (BEF) provides a special Thank You! to recognize teachers, faculty, and staff who made the year special or went that extra mile. The STARaward program delivers a personalized certificate to the recipient and acknowledgement of the award to the principal and on our website. STAR awards can also be used to thank other community members who have made a difference, as well as acknowledge students for their hard work.

Forms are available online at Entries must be completed by June 16th for delivery before the end of the school year. For every entry submitted, your donation of $20 helps to support the BEF’s mission in making the Burlington schools outstanding.
