Make a Difference
Driven by a volunteer Board of Directors, we are "Empowering Students and Teachers in Our Community." Thank you for your support as donors, volunteers, and sponsors. With your help we can make a difference. Learn more and get involved.
Throughout the year, UTBEF partners with community businesses and organizations for fundraising events. Let us know if you are hosting an event and would like to partner with us. We can assist with planning and volunteers and you can rest assured that your proceeds are going to make a difference to local schoolchildren.
Be the light that brightens the future for students and teachers. You can help raise awareness and generate funding for $2000 technical scholarships for local high school students and mini-grants to fund teacher projects at area elementary schools. Scholarship awards are based on GPA, leadership, community service, and financial need. Mini-grant recipients are determined by school administrators based on the particular needs of their student population.
You won't have more fun for a good cause than sponsoring or volunteering at an event or working on our Scholarship or STAR Mini-Grant committee. Some call us a bit wacky, but our philosophy is that charity should be fun. We depend on sponsorships and volunteers to support our programs and need you on our team. You'll be surprised at what a huge difference a little bit of your time can make.
