Welcome to the Bensalem Education Foundation website!
We hope you will visit our site often!
The Bensalem Education Foundation is a proud member of the Association of PA Education Foundations (APEF) and the National School Foundation Association (NSFA)
Looking for more information about one of the following?
The Bensalem Education Foundation (BEF) is a group of community and school volunteers who work to get more resources to benefit students in the Bensalem Township School District. We are a federally-recognized public charity (501c3). We raise money for things the school needs that are not part of the budget. We provide an opportunity for teachers and administrators to apply for outside grants that require a non-profit entity as a sponsor, and because we are a non-profit, businesses and individuals can now donate to the school and get tax deductions for their donations.
2016-2017 First Fridays
The First Fridays program is going well. For $5 each month, teachers and staff can dress in their Bensalem Spirit gear on the first Friday that school is in session each month. Half of the funds raised in this program go into the Spirit accounts for the building in which they work and half are used to for other BEF programming. Thank you to everyone who participates.
Dates for the 2016-17 school year are:

Power Up! Program provides BEF with income when people choose Stream Energy!
We are all looking for ways to support our
favorite causes while still being conscious of family budgets. Bensalem Education
Foundation has partnered with Stream Energy to assist our
supporters in helping us by simply doing something they already do: pay
their energy bill. Stream Energy's unique Power Up! Program helps raise
funds by paying us monthly commissions when our supporters enroll for
their electricity or natural gas service through Bensalem Education
Up! Program is an excellent fundraising campaign for us because
everybody uses energy already, and the commissions we receive are paid
monthly for the duration of your relationship with Stream Energy.
There’s no extra out-of-pocket cost for you, and we benefit on an
ongoing basis every month.
Still have questions? The PA
Public Utility Commission (PUC) has tools to help consumers understand
what it means to shop for electricity and how to shop. Visit papowerswitch.com to learn more!
